Sermon for 2017-JAN-29 | Epiphany 4 | New Beatitudes

Text: Matthew 4:12-23

Title: Following Nadia Boltz-Weber’s idea ““What if the Beatitudes aren’t about a list of conditions we should try to meet to be blessed? What if Jesus saying ‘blessed are the meek’ is not instructive but performative.” (from her book Accidental Saints) – Pastor Steve names some new and local beatitudes.  Martin Luther’s idea Law (conditional statements about what we should do) & Gospel (the good news of what God has done for you) is also discussed.

Preaching: Pastor Steve Johnston
