The Sermon on the Mount
In chapters five, six, and seven of Matthew’s gospel, we find a collection of the teachings of Jesus. In these teachings, Jesus is challenging the people of that day to rethink their understanding of the Hebrew Scriptures. He is speaking to a first-century Jewish audience. Join us this fall as we revisit the “Sermon on the Mount” and reflect on the implications of our Lord’s teachings for Christians in the 21st Century. The Bible Study Group meets every Wednesday morning at 10:30.
