Matthew 5–7

Being Who We Are: The Sermon On The Mount

Jonathan Pennington says this about the Sermon On The Mount: “The Sermon is Christianity’s answer to the greatest metaphysical question that humanity has always faced—How can we experience true human flourishing? What is happiness, blessedness, shalom, and how does one obtain and sustain it?” The Sermon on the Mount gives us a picture of what a glorified creation, people and culture will be, as well as, what is possible now by God’s grace. In short, Jesus is teaching us how to be what we already are and will one day truly be.
