The Two Ways
Oct 30 2022 • Dan Kent, Greg Boyd
Life is a series of decisions. Do we choose this or that? On the one hand… but then on the other…? In Jesus’ time, most Jews would have known about the Two Ways tradition. It taught that when it comes to choosing, there is one way that leads to light and life, and another that leads to death and destruction. Drawing on this tradition, Jesus finishes the Sermon on the Mount by showing us that we can choose between two ways of life: right or wrong, true or false, life or death.
