The Sermon On The Mount

The Sermon On The Mount

Jan 2019 - Feb 2019

Whether one believes that Jesus of Nazareth was the Son of God…or simply a wise teacher, it is impossible to deny the impact of perhaps the world’s most famous speech: The Sermon on the Mount. No speech has been more pondered, more influential, or more quoted. It introduced a prayer…now familiar the world over…and uttered in trenches, churches, and bedsides around the globe. It introduced a code of conduct billions of believers have adopted as their lofty, if not not always attainable, goal. 

While much of the sermon has roots in Jewish law, the advice given in the Beatitudes represented a dramatic and radical departure from the eye-for-an-eye system of justice…known in the ancient world. The standards of behaviour outlined in the sermon have given believers and non-believers alike…plenty to contemplate and discuss in the two thousand years since it was given.

 Join us over the next 6 weeks as we explore this amazing sermon and why it has changed the world so dramatically.  But if you do, be prepared to have it change your life forever.
