"Anger" Matthew 5:21-26 (Matthew: The Preaching of the King)

Not too far into the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus specifically addresses the role of the Law among the community of God's people. As the One fulfilling not abolishing the Law, Jesus cuts through the faulty interpretation of man to bring out God's intent for His disciples. This week, we will see how Jesus tackles the themes of murder, anger, and relational brokenness. The problem is not so simple. The solution is not imposed. And Jesus' teaching leads us into a way of love that both astounds and woos, clarifying the vocation of the people of God. Jesus' critique, correction and core concerns highlight the beauty of the Kingdom of God.
