When Jesus bursts onto the scene in Ancient Israel some are hoping that he will lead a Jewish revolt against the Roman Empire. Some are hoping he will vindicate the spiritual teachings of the Jewish leaders. But what Jesus says challenges everything.
Jesus' most famous words are found in the Sermon on the Mount. It is considered one of the greatest speeches of all time. Why? Because Jesus' words cut to the heart of the matter. They are revolutionary, countercultural and as relevant today as in his day.
