Ep. 75 - Matthew - Chapter 5 - verses 1-12

Update: 2019-10-17


This week on the Adorned Podcast we begin our study of The Sermon on the Mount, Jesus’ longest recorded sermon. In His teaching, Jesus answers the question “what is a good life or what is human flourishing?” On episode 75 we cover the first part of chapter 5, which is known as the “beatitudes.” The beatitudes are not a band, as Erin once believed, but they are short statements that start with “blessed” and they summarize the essence of The Sermon on the Mount. Join us as we continue to see Jesus paint this picture of what it looks like to live as a follower of Him.

“True human flourishing is only available through communion with the Father God through his revealed Son, Jesus, as we are empowered by the Holy Spirit. This flourishing is only experienced through faithful, heart-deep, whole-person discipleship, following Jesus’ teachings and life, which situate the disciple into God’s community or kingdom. This flourishing will only be experienced fully in the eschaton, when God finally establishes his reign upon the earth. As followers of Jesus journey through their lives, they will experience suffering in this world, which in God’s providence is in fact a means to true flourishing even now” -Jonathan T. Pennington
“The first 4 beatitudes are where our faith takes root and the last 4 are how it bears fruit” -Jen Wilkin
In reference to being poor in spirit - “ It is the conscious acknowledgement of unworth before God, the deepest form of repentance.” -D.A. Carson
“Meekness is not weakness it is strength that is restrained”
