This week on MelVee Sabbath School we are re-joined by Melusi Ndhlalambi as anchor, with Nixon Kadiramwando and Simdumise Poswa as they discuss Bible Lesson #3 on, “The Sermon of Jesus on The Mount.”
The lesson is underpinned by Matthew 7:28, 29 which says, “And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: For he taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.”
In the book of Exodus, we see God lead the children of Israel out of
Egypt, “baptize” them in the Red Sea, bring them through the wilderness for 40 years, work signs and wonders, and meet with them personally on a mountaintop where He gives them His law.
In the book of Matthew, we see Jesus come out of Egypt, be baptized in the Jordan River, go out into the wilderness for 40 days, work signs and wonders, and meet personally with Israel on a mountaintop where He amplifies this same law. Jesus walked the history of Israel, became Israel, and in Him all the covenant promises were fulfilled.
The Sermon on the Mount is the most powerful sermon ever
preached. His words have profoundly influenced not only its immediate listeners but all who would hear its life-changing messages down through the centuries and even to our time.
And yet, we must not just listen to this sermon; we also must apply
it. This week, along with studying what Jesus said in the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5–7), we will study what Jesus said in Matthew 13 about applying His words to our lives.
