Pastor to Lead Bible Study on “The Sermon on the Mount” – Will Resume on January 9, 2019

Starting on Wednesday, September 19, at 6:30 PM, the Pastor will begin a study of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7) – “Living into the Kingdom of God.”. While some of Jesus’ best-known teaching is found in these chapters, readers can often come away inspired but confused. We find Jesus’ exacting ethical demands compelling, but we wonder who could possibly live up to all of them. We also wonder whether or not all of the teaching is intended to be followed absolutely. Are we, for example, supposed to “turn the other cheek” in every circumstance? And what about when we fail to live up to all of Jesus’ teaching? Can we still be his disciples? This study is aimed at gaining clarity about what Jesus was saying and what he was not saying to us, his disciples.
