Our church is going through the Gospel of Matthew this year. This is my first sermon in that series. I get to cover the Beatitudes in it.  Click here to download a PDF of this PPT. Because this was the first sermon in a series of sermons we’ll be doing in the Sermon on the Mount I spent considerable time introducing the Sermon on the Mount.


The scholars I’ve found helpful on Matthew include David Garland, Donald Senior, NT Wright, Craig Evans, Stephen C. Barton, and Craig Keener (among several others). You can watch my sermon below.
