In this section of the Sermon on the Mount (Matt 5:21-26), Jesus draws the comparison between murder and anger: “You have heard that it was said to those of ancient times, ‘You shall not murder’; and ‘whoever murders shall be liable to judgment.’ But I say to you that if you are angry with a brother or sister, you will be liable to judgment..." So, Anger = Murder? Is that what Jesus really means? And what's with the warning about altars and courts and endless jail time that follows?

The Sermon on the Mount begins with the beatitudes and an inspiring bit about being like salt and light. But then Jesus shifts gears and tells his listeners that he has not come to abolish the laws, but to fulfill them. So what does this mean? Does salvation by grace exclude us from the Old Testament laws, or are these laws still necessary for our obedience? And if they are important, are they all equally important, and how can we possibly be faithful?

The Sermon on the Mount contains some of the most famous sayings of Jesus: “The Lord’s Prayer,” “love your enemies,” “no one can serve both God and money,” “turn the other cheek,” “go the extra mile,” and of course “The Golden Rule.” Good stuff. But is there a common theme and purpose that unites this collection of teachings? And could we actually be expected, as followers of Jesus, to, you know, follow?
