This teaching of Jesus is about retaliation and violence when others act unjustly toward you. He teaches a way of responding (non-violent resistance) that exposes the evil, embarrasses the perpetrator, and affirms the dignity of the victim/survivor.
This third and fourth talk on Living the Life God Intended is about the “blessed be’s” of Jesus… the different kinds of people who are blessed because the Kingdom of Heaven has come to them.
This second teaching in Living The Life God Intended deals with Jesus’ understanding and proclamation of the Kingdom of Heaven, and the life that we can live by being under God’s rule and reign.
Living The Life God Intended is a new series that expounds Jesus’ teachings in ‘The Sermon on the Mount’ – on how to live the kind of life that God intended – made possible in his Kingdom!
