An intro to the Sermon on the Mount

We are beginning a new study, looking at Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount. It is found in Matthew 5-7, with parallel passages in Luke 6. Our focus in this study will be understanding Jesus’ teaching of “the kingdom of God/heaven”. What did he mean by that term? How did that term relate to them, to us and to our future? We will introduce the sermon this week, and then look at elements of it over the next several weeks.
