If you’re looking for a clear and concise guide to how the Christian life gets lived out, the Sermon on the Mount’s the place to start. So that’s where we’re going to be for the next few weeks.

Now when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, and he began to teach them.

What about a thirty year old man getting a good high vantage point so that he can have a conversation with some people. That’s just about acoustics, right?

Mountains matter in the Bible. Remember Moses? If the writer wants us to know anything from these first two sentences, it’s probably this: what is about to happen is massive. Moses-sized massive.

What about the teaching? It’s not just a set of handy tips, tricks and life-hacks. It’s specific. It’s real. And it’s costly.

It’s Moses-massive. For anyone who wants to call themselves a follower of Jesus, what follows next is as clear a set of principles as we could possibly hope for. Are you ready?
