Living Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount

Theologian and professor Randy Harris has a new book and film series on the Sermon on the Mount called Living Jesus: How the Greatest Sermon Ever Will Change Your Life for Good.  It’s pretty good.  Now, it can’t match the actual content of Jesus’ sermon.  But then again, what can?  As Randy rightly says in his material, Jesus’ great sermon is the key teaching that directs real Christian living.  Jesus wasn’t sharing ethereal theological concepts so that the crowds would have something to debate over dinner that night.  He wasn’t showing off his unmatched ability to summarize and prioritize the Law.  He was telling us what it looks like to live like God.

If you think that Jesus’ words are impossibly lofty or somehow out-of-touch with the realities of life in an amoral culture, then you don’t yet understand what Jesus is really calling us to through the Sermon on the Mount.  It isn’t simply new thoughts or deeper understanding; it is action.  It is doing.

And it is possible!

Starting tomorrow night at 7:00, we’ll be working through the Sermon on the Mount with the help of Dr. Harris’s materials at the East Point Church of Christ in Wichita.  Our time together can change your life if, that is, you’re willing to be an authentic disciple of Jesus.

I hope you’ll choose to join us!  God bless.

    Great to see you are in KS, Patrick! I am hoping a friend of mine may visit soon at East Point.
    I’m reading Randy and Greg’s book right now. I’ve watched half of the DVD. Good stuff!
