(Not) Business as Usual
To set up the sermon on the mount, we must first understand the world Jesus came into, the personhood of Jesus, and the social order during his time on earth. We will explore how his teaching contrasted with conventional wisdom, and why that got him killed. We will also see what Jesus calls “The Reign of God” (sometimes said The Kingdom of God) both arriving NOW and NOT YET, with Jesus giving us sneak previews of the world to come and inviting us to help inch the world closer to what God had in mind for it.
