The Beatitudes

BeatitudesThe Beatitudes

The center of the teaching and preaching ministry of Jesus, as he lived among us, “full of grace and truth,” is found in the Sermon on the Mount, beginning with the Beatitudes. (Matthew 5:1-12). In the Beatitudes the life which Jesus calls us to lead is given its clearest, most dynamic expression. Truly this is a “blessed” life we are given, and in the Beatitudes we find the heart of the teaching of Jesus. In the window, Jesus is surrounded by men and women of faith, gathered at his feet, as he points to his heavenly Father.
