The Sermon on the Mount: Preaching, Teaching and Living in Righteousness

Kenneth E. Bailey and Christine Pohl will help participants to understand themes from the Sermon and to consider their power and beauty for preaching, teaching, and life in Christian community. Hosted by Cornelius Plantinga, Jr.

Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount contains some of the most famous verses in Scripture. Even people without a Bible have heard of the golden rule, the Lord’s Prayer, and, possibly, the Beatitudes. Even libertines quote one verse from the Sermon: “Do not judge, or you too will be judged.” But the Sermon on the Mount yields its greatest riches when good scholars and teachers dig them up for us and help us estimate their value. Kenneth E. Bailey and Christine Pohl are excellent diggers and their seminar will help participants to understand themes from the Sermon and to consider their power and beauty for preaching, teaching, and life in Christian community.
