Jesus's sermon reported in Matthew 5-7 is one of the most beloved and challenging texts in the Bible. I had the privilege, in the Spring of 2016, to create a 28 day devotional based on that sermon, in concert with close reading of the Greek. What follows in this series is a lightly edited version of the work for my Matthew course under Dr. Mark Jennings.
The devotional is targeted towards urban undergraduates, both those who follow Jesus and those who are exploring Christianity. But my hope is that it will bless you as well, no matter where you are, "for the word of God is alive and active."
