Matthew 5-7 with Jonathan Pennington
Join us as Dr. Jonathan Pennington (Southern Seminary) talks to us about Matthew 5-7 (The Sermon on the Mount). We discuss a number of things including: the structure of the Sermon on the Mount; the beatitudes and if there is a better way to translate the Greek term makarios; Jesus’s interpretation of the law; the theme of wholeness; the Lord’s prayer; Jesus’ attitude to riches; the place of works and the ethical demands of the Sermon. Listen here.
