Week 1 in our series The Sermon on the Mount: A Manifesto on Life in the Kingdom
In this week's teaching we take a bird's eye view of what the Sermon on the Mount is about. From the beginning of human history it has been God's purpose to fill the earth with his image bearing people, who would extend the dominion and influence of his kingdom throughout the creation, to all creatures everywhere. But, because of sin and the curse, it became necessary for God to bring about the redemption of our fallen images and the restoration of all things through his Son Jesus. Now, as the perfect image bearing King, Jesus comes into the world to save us and to teach us how to live in his newly established Kingdom.
