In Jesus' famous sermon on the mount, he unpacks his picture of who his people are meant to be. Jumping from topic to topic, he explains how being a follower of Jesus impacts your morality, your ethics, your sexuality, your finances and more.
In all of it, his goal is to create a counter-cultural contrast community–a group of people who live actively in the world, but at the same time are distinct from it. We explore what it means to live a life that is both attractive and sometimes offensive to the watching world.
In this series, we sift through Jesus' teaching on what a counter-cultural community of human beings can look like, using his sermon on the mount as a guide.
