Scripture: Matthew 5:1-2a; Matthew 7:21-29
Jesus is known as a profound teacher – someone who offered incredible wisdom to those who would follow him. The focus of his teaching was the Kingdom of God – God’s new way of being in the world, the community that Jesus inaugurated (and that we see in glimpses in this life and will come in its fullness in eternity). Today we will talk about the centrality of God’s Kingdom to everything Jesus did and said, and will spend time exploring the collection of teaching which is frequently identified as Jesus’ most important – the Sermon on the Mount.
