Sermon on the Mount

Jul 26 2020 • Greg Boyd

When Jesus started preaching, he announced there was a new Kingdom in town and everyone was welcome to join. But what exactly was he inviting them to? In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus lays out God’s vision for a whole new kind of world. In a way this sermon is his manifesto, his charter, his declaration for a new way of life. But it’s far more surprising, beautiful and astonishing than any human system could ever be. Over the next several months, we’re taking a deep dive into the kind of world that comes to life when Jesus followers bring God’s Kingdom to earth as it is in heaven.

Sermons in this series:


The Core Issue

• Greg Boyd

To love our enemy, we must understand two core issues. First, we can only love when we are allowing Christ to meet our core needs. Secondly, all people share the same basic core needs, but they fall into the trap of trying to meet them in false ways. 

Topics: Identity in Christ, Love


Jesus’ Third Way Response to Evil

• Greg Boyd

How do we respond to evil? There are three options: We can respond in kind, we can cower to it, or we can opt for Jesus’ third option. This sermon explores the third option and challenges us to combat the evil of our world by offering an unexpected response.

Topics: Non-Violence, Peace


God, Sex and Family

• Greg Boyd, Lambers Fisher, Paul Eddy

Please note that this message has some "PG-13" content that may not be suitable for kids. This panel discussion serves as a wrap-up to the series on sex, marriage and singleness, as the panelists address practical issues around these topics.

Topics: Love, Marriage, Sexuality


Reality Over Legalities

• Greg Boyd

Jesus’ words about divorce appears to provide a technical reason for justifying the breaking of the marriage covenant. Is this what this passage really means, or is there something more significant that Jesus was saying? This sermon provides an unexpected answer to this question.

Topics: Divorce, Love, Marriage


The Myth of Romantic Love

• Emily Morrison, Greg Boyd

In this sermon, Greg challenges the modern myth of romantic love, providing three reasons why it derails us from entering into a biblical view of marriage. Also, Emily Morrison provides a reframe for understanding how singleness plays a part in God’s family.

Topics: Community, Family, Marriage


The Way of the Beloved Community

• Osheta Moore

In this section of Scripture we're in, Jesus explains the difference between what people of his day assumed the Old Testament law meant and what it really means. He's making clear the underlying spirit of the law, as opposed to the literal interpretation that focuses on the letter of the law. This points to a “third way” pattern of living out the Kingdom of God that manifests the true meaning of God’s law.

Topics: Covenant, Faithfulness, Relationships
