At Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Charleston, SC, our senior pastor continued our Matthew sermon series covering Matthew 5:1-2 this past Sunday, May 27. He reviewed the companion sermon from last week, and he continued his list of actions that Jesus our King does. Last week we examined how Jesus stirs things up, sees, and sits, and then we saw how Jesus our King speaks this week.
Matthew writes his gospel to show that Jesus is the fulfillment of Old Testament promises. Though Moses was a type of redeemer, Jesus fulfills as the true Redeemer. As Jesus begins to speak the Sermon on the Mount, this sermon can’t be ignored. We must ask ourselves: What is the Sermon on the Mount about? Jesus starts his sermon with peace or “shalom.” Listen to the whole sermon here.
