Follow the path to abundant life through Jesus' sermons.
Jesus traveled throughout Galilee proclaiming the good news of the arrival of the kingdom of God. He taught his disciples that they could experience abundant life in the kingdom even now by embracing the wisdom found in his teachings.
Join New Testament scholar Kenneth Schenck as he reflects deeply on wisdom of kingdom living, focusing primarily on the five sermons of Jesus found in the gospel of Matthew.
Based on the solid scholarship found in Schenck's two books, Jesus The Mission and Jesus Portraits from the Gospels, The Wisdom of Jesus provides thirty days of in-depth devotions on the Sermon on the Mount, the mission sermon, the parable sermon, the kingdom sermon, and the end times sermon. Each devotion will challenge you to engage, examine, and explore one of Jesus' sermons and then take it to God in prayer.
Eva P. Scott4 Stars Out Of 530-Day Study/Devotion Guide from the Sermon on the MountJuly 11, 2017Eva P. ScottQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4The book is divided into six weeks' worth of study. Each day has about three pages. It lists the Scriptures to read from your Bible. It lists a quote from either the Bible or from some other source related to the Scriptures you are reading. It gives a little background information and asks you reflection questions for your study.
The lessons are not very in-depth, but they would be a good short daily study or could be used for small groups as a starting-off point of discussion.
Each section ends with a short prayer to complete the study.
The type style is easy to read; it has cream-colored pages with black ink, and the book is small enough to keep with your Bible or to take to a class. It is a paperback book and the cover is well done with a textured feel.
I would recommend this book as a devotional guide but not as an in-depth study guide of the Sermon on the Mount.
