Sermon on the Mount (SM): The Radical Kingdom and Its Unlikely Recipients (Matthew 5:1-12)
Jesus' life was notorious for offending, displeasing, and angering those around him. He was different. He had a different way of viewing the world. And, he said some pretty radical things. The Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7) serves as a compilation of some of Jesus' most radical teachings in one place. However, the shock value of his words are not limited to the original audience alone; we soon will see the values of Jesus run counter-cultural to many of our own.
