445. Jesus on the Mount: A Message for Jews or Gentiles?

It's commonly referred to as The Sermon on the Mount in Matthew chapters 5-7. Why is it so important to know who was targeted in this message? Much of what Jesus said here is often applied as some sort of new covenant teaching for Christians. This week we take a closer look into who Jesus was speaking to and the context around the things He said. Are we running from the words of Jesus? Absolutely not. There was always a purpose for what Jesus said. But attempting to apply Old Covenant teachings about the Mosaic Law and turning them into a standard for Christian living does not bring people into the freedom that God intended.
