Over the next few weeks, we are going to take a look at Matthew 5:3-12. We will look at the Beatitudes one at a time and study what each of them mean.
The Sermon on the Mount is the first recorded teaching of Jesus’ ministry, and he starts with the Beatitudes, “Blessed are those who…”. We could read each one individually or together. We could take them at face value and say that Jesus was just telling the Jews how to live. But what if we dug deeper? What if Jesus spoke these things for everyone? What if there was a reason He said what He did and in the order that He did?
