The Norms of the Kingdom

We read in the New Testament about the life of Jesus and how he brings us new life. Now it’s natural to ask if we’ve been given this new life, then how should we live? Our passage today in Matthew, which is part of the Sermon on the Mount, is one of the best places to get Jesus’ main teaching on how to live.

This is one of the most famous pieces of literature in the history of the human race. Because it is so rich, we need to pay close attention to every part, every verse and word. But today we’re going to look at an overview under three headings: the glory of the Sermon on the Mount, the terror of the Sermon on the Mount, and the hero of the Sermon on the Mount. You won’t understand the Sermon on the Mount unless you understand these three things.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on April 15, 2012. Series “Savior and Teacher – A Study of Matthew
“. Scripture: Matthew 5:1-10.
