Jesus was a brilliant teacher who taught with clarity and authority, drawing thousands to listen to him. His teaching about the Kingdom of God was radical and revolutionary. On many occasions what he taught was counter intuitive and counter cultural. In the Sermon on the Mount he said ‘You have heard it said … but I tell you’. Jesus perspective was very different to the world’s and His words turned people’s understanding upside down. The Beatitudes do exactly that, they bring a new and fresh perspective on God’s kingdom and how God wants us to live as His people. Over the nine weeks we will look carefully and closely at Jesus words to uncover the radical way He invites us to live.
