We are on the 3rd episode in our series on Matthew and here is where we get a long sermon followed by some healing stories! These are well known and well used passages, there is so much to uncover here. We have the Sermon on the Mount, one of the longest recorded speeches by Jesus, and it is so rich in nuance when you look at the carefully composed discourse and deliberate structure that will become the core of Jesus’ teachings. We look at what that meant for that early Christian community, how the themes of healing were exposing the sickness caused by the Roman Empire, and what it looks like in our world today to put your faith into action.
