Dietrich Bonhoeffer, martyred for his Christian faith in WWll wrote this –
“Humanly speaking, it is possible to understand the Sermon on the Mount in a thousand different ways. But Jesus knows only one possibility: simple surrender and obedience – not interpreting or applying it, but doing and obeying it. That is the only way to hear his words. He does not mean for us to discuss it as an ideal. He really means for us to get on with it.”
In “Do you really want to be wise” we’re going to be looking at this greatest of sermons from Jesus of Nazareth.
