On the Mount

Two thousand years ago, the greatest teacher in the history of the planet stood (or perhaps sat) on the side of a mountain and told what was surely a rapt Jewish audience all about the kingdom of heaven and how its subjects behave. Not by coincidence, he is also its king.

The series is not exactly the usual verse-by-verse commentary of Matthew 5 through 7. I am attempting to put the modern reader in the sandals of the original audience while simultaneously applying the words of Christ (where possible) to the modern believer.
