Rev. Beth Gedert

This morning we continue with a new series we started last week. We're going to spend the rest of the summer studying Jesus' Sermon on the Mount. Last week we looked at the salt and light passage, but this week we are going back to the beginning of the Sermon on the Mount. Now let's put this in context. This is the very beginning of Jesus's teaching in the book of Matthew. Before this Jesus gets baptized, he is tempted in the desert, and after John the Baptist is arrested, Jesus continues to proclaim John's message: Repent for the Kingdom of the heavens is at hand. But we don't yet hear any of his preaching: Matthew just says that's what Jesus is saying. Next he calls the disciples and then the gospel tells us that he begins teaching in the Jewish synagogues, which means he would have been interpreting the Old Testament, also preaching the good news of the Kingdom, and healing people. And this begins to catch people's attention.
