The Sermon on the Mount: A Beginners Guide to the Kingdom of Heaven by Dr. Amy-Jill Levine
How is the follower of Jesus to understand the words of the Old Testament? How are those words relevant to the New Covenant he is establishing? What might the words of the Lord’s Prayer have conveyed to his initial followers, and why is that historical information essential to the prayer two millennia later?
In “The Sermon on the Mount” Dr. Amy-Jill Levine takes a detailed and colorful overview of Matthew 5-7, collectively known as Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount. Through Dr. Levine’s engaging method of biblical interpretation, we will come away with a solid understanding of the Sermon on the Mount in its historical and theological context (approximately 6 weeks, starting the last week of September). We hope you will join us, either in person or on Zoom.
