"Enemies" Matthew 5:38-48 (Matthew: The Preaching of the King)

As the Master Teacher, Jesus continues building His Sermon on the Mount and reaches the zenith of his controversial words. With razor-like precision, Jesus cuts to the heart of Law and speaks about a generous love for one's enemies and those who cause harm. With each example and shocking explanation, Jesus describes a kind of perfect love that few in the world have ever seen or known... a love that challenges humanity on every level. As chapter 5 comes to a close, Jesus paints a picture of a contrast community in every sense of the word. And, as a result, invites His people to a kind of life that goes beyond religion and requires divine intervention. Discover kingdom love at its full dimension.
