Rethinking the Sermon on the Mount

Presented by Kirk MacGregor

Jesus of Nazareth was a first-century Jewish preacher that lived in an era of intense struggle between the Jewish people and the Roman Empire. This presentation examines the historical context surrounding Jesus' longest teaching, The Sermon on the Mount. Often oversimplified as either moral platitudes or requirements for admission to heaven, contemporary research into the era indicates the sermon may have been more an effort to promote a countercultural program of nonviolent resistance against Roman oppression.
