The View from the Top

A large crowd is crammed together to listen to an increasingly famous teacher - people all the way from Judea and Jerusalem in the south, as well as hearers from the Gentile lands along the coasts of Tyre and Sidon to the north, present-day Lebanon. Jesus is healing the sick with great power, and many, many are being healed.
But at this moment he is speaking to his disciples. The word "disciples" in vs.20 is broader than just the Twelve. These disciples are Jesus' followers, his adherents, but they are distinguished from the multitudes who are present on this occasion. Still, there is a "large crowd" (6:17) of disciples. Jesus is speaking to followers.
"Blessed are you poor," he begins, "for yours is the kingdom of God."
He addresses them as "the poor," and begins to explain how the kingdom of God turns the values of the world upside down.
Join us this Sunday@5 as we explore some of the most important words spoken to human beings - what it means to be a follower of Jesus and view life from the top.
