Week 2 in our series The Sermon on the Mount: A Manifesto on Life in the Kingdom
In this week's teaching we considered the first three beatitudes of Jesus' Sermon on the Mount. These first three beatitudes are an integrated whole. The person who understands their spiritual poverty before God will mourn their sinful condition. And the person who is mourning their sinful condition before God will become meek. And it is these people who are blessed, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven, they will be comforted, and they will inherit the earth.
