February 7, 2016: The Preaching of Jesus – Attitude Adjustment

February 7, 2016  The Preaching of Jesus – Attitude Adjustment

 

 

Memorize:  Matthew 7:28-29– When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at His teaching, because He taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law.

 


Read:  Matthew 5-7

 Monday: The next few weeks, we will be looking at the Sermon on the Mount.  The Sermon on the Mount is the sermon that Jesus gave in Matthew chapters 5-7. Matthew 5:1-2 is the reason it is known as the Sermon on the Mount: “Now when He saw the crowds, He went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to Him, and He began to teach them…” The Sermon on the Mount is the most famous sermon Jesus ever gave, perhaps the most famous sermon ever given by anyone.
