Preaching the Beatitudes in Context
The blessings depicted in the Beatitudes are deeply countercultural. Not only do they contrast radically with the values and attitudes generally accepted in Jesus’ context, but they also denounced the oppressive and unjust practices and systems of the time. How do Christians read and live the Beatitudes in light of the challenges of our complex societies? In this panel discussion, three pastors from different nations reflect on the message of the Beatitudes in their original context and share their insights about the art of preaching the Beatitudes faithfully and relevantly for today’s world. This is a YouTube Video Premiere panel discussion.
