The Sermon on the Mount – Blessed are the Spiritually Bankrupt

January 21, 2018


The sermon on the mount is one of the most famous sections in all of the Bible. But, it is also one of the most challenging. Jesus opens the sermon with the “Beatitudes” or the supreme blessings. However, what he says is incredibly counter-cultural and counter-intuitive. Is it really true that the spiritually poor are blessed? In this sermon, we explore the beauty and challenge of the beatitudes.
