The first 8 statements of Jesus' teachings in the Sermon on the Mount are called the Beatitudes. They are not commands the believer must fulfill to enter the kingdom of God, rather, thay are results of the coming of the kingdom. They are part of the Gospel, the good news that Jesus, the Messiah, has come. God was about to intervene decisively in history and produce people like the ones described in the Sermon on the Mount. Each beatitude has descriptions and related texts, plus application questions. Additional articles are provided throughout.
