The most familiar sermon in the world, The Sermon on the Mount, spoken by Jesus of Nazareth over 2000 years ago, is still a critically important message for followers of Jesus in the 21st century. Every word of every paragraph of every topic is addressed in this brief book. Jesus is drawing the watching world to unparalleled teachable moments about how to be salt and light citizens in the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven. Johnny White contends that life is hard enough already. Jesus did not come to make things harder than they already are by limiting salvation to only the FEW, but he upheld impossible possibilities that point to the undeniable grace of God for the MANY. Jesus pointed to a life more abundant than retribution and revenge and violence. He pointed to a Third Way of mercy, forgiveness, and grace that refuses violence, yet never fails to confront evil. A life such as Dietrich Bonhoeffer sought to live. What could be more apropos for a contentious uncivil time such as this? No matter what happens next.
