About it, Frederick Bruner writes, “I think something actually happens to listening people when Jesus’ Beatitudes are passed on to them…The Beatitudes are concentrated Gospel…The person for whom the experience of impoverishment is a spiritual crisis, who groans in his or her spirit under the poverty, who is on the way down and who cries out—to this person Jesus announces, “Look up! I am here, taking your part, and the Kingdom I bring is especially for you!” (160)
The Sermon on the Mount is the core foundation for all the rest of Jesus’ gospel. The Beatitudes (the Blessed Bes) are the cornerstone for the entire Sermon on the Mount, and the first beatitude (5:3) is the pinnacle of it all.
Welcome to the Sermon on the Mount.
