Prince of Peace
Explore what it means to walk in the footsteps of Israel’s Messiah. Jeff’s passage-by-passage exposition of Jesus’ principal teachings comes to life through on-location production with real-world re-enactments, all performed by Israelis.
Verses 16–18 note that fasting pays dividends. With verses 19–21, we consider the fact that laying up treasures on Earth, alone, does not. God wants Believers to be gracious, not greedy, per verses 22–23.
Jesus challenges followers to serve either God or possessions (6:24). Blessings abound to those who serve Him (6:25–34). Considering how blessed we forgiven ones are, we must not rush to judge others (Matthew 7:1–6).
Matthew 7:7–12 addresses tenacity and God’s benevolence in the Christian’s life. The “narrow path” we must walk (7:13–14) is not the path chosen by the majority. Our “fruits” testify on our behalf; likewise, we can beware of those whose lifestyles and teachings stand as an indictment against them (7:15–20).
God works in spite of evildoers, not through them. Deception of self and others gives way to truth at Day’s End (7:21–23). Jesus advises us to build our hope for salvation on the right foundation—Him (7:24–29). Jeff reviews the entire “Sermon on the Mount,” and offers closing reflections.
