The Ethics of Jesus

Sermon on the Mount

Jesus has a vision for human society. His vision is based not on a utopian ideal of what works best, or what makes the most sense to our cultural moment, but on the foundational idea that every human being is created in the image of God. We were created to live with and for God. To love like he loves, to forgive like he forgives, to serve like he serves. In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus teaches us not merely how to live, but what it means to be truly human. Jesus not only shows us the way, but he has given his life to empower us to live it.
