What's Special in Jesus' Sermon on the Mount?

 

What's Special in Jesus' Sermon on the Mount?

 

1.  Jesus taught values (Matthew 5:3-10).  The Beatitudes present a set   

     of values which Jesus expects his followers to adopt, because they

     are important to God.  These are not the values most people think

     of as important.

 

2.  Jesus explained the true intent of Old Testament Law

     (Matthew 5:17-47)

 

3.  Jesus emphasized the personal nature of a relationship with God

     (Matthew 6:1-8)

 

4.  Jesus taught how to approach God in prayer

     (Matthew 6:9-13)

 

5.  Jesus taught personal priorities

     (Matthew 6:19-24)

 

6.  Jesus taught trust in God as a loving Father

     (Matthew 6:25-34)

 

7.  Jesus taught coming to God with our needs

     (Matthew 7:7-11)

 

8.  Jesus taught life-building

     (Matthew 7:24-27)
