A SERIES ON THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT
Jesus was a single, Jewish, homeless man, who never wrote a single book, yet he is the most talked about historical figure of all time. His life and teaching turned the world UPSIDE DOWN. The world has never been the same since!
Those who thought they were ‘in,’ were actually ‘out’ and those who thought they had no hope for relationship with God found themselves in the midst of God’s pursuit of them. Jesus challenged religious people’s generally accepted beliefs and customs. He nudged sinners towards grace and pointed out the pride of those who didn’t think they needed a savior. He reframed God’s commands in terms of the heart, rather than external obedience. He spoke freedom to the captives and hope to the hopeless. In our series we will explore how Jesus turned the world UPSIDE DOWN with one sermon that he gave on a mountainside thousands of years ago.
