In this episode of People in Exile, Andrew, Ben, and Chris discuss the first four Beatitudes. How can we understand the Beatitudes? What do we mean when we say, "vertical beatitudes" and "horizontal beatitudes"?
1. Poor in Spirit,
4. Hunger and Thirst for Righteousness.
A. Theirs is the kingdom of heaven,
B. They shall be comforted,
C. They shall inherit the earth,
D. They shall be satisfied.
In this episode of People in Exile, Andrew, Ben, and Chris discuss this question, "What are FIVE Keywords you would use to to describe who Jesus is?"
In this episode of People in Exile, Andrew, Ben, and Chris compare and contrast Matthew 5 with Luke 6.
Is this the same sermon? If so, is it contradictory? If not, how do we best understand these two texts together?
Blessed are the poor in spirit
Blessed are those who mourn
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness
Blessed are the poor
Blessed are those who mourn now
Blessed are those who hunger now
In this episode of People in Exile, Andrew, Ben, and Chris discuss the "UN-Beatitudes" or the "anti-beatitudes." In an effort to gain more clarity and understanding of this Scripture, they discuss the opposites of the Beatitudes.
The Beatitudes reads: "Bless are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy."
The UN-Beatitude would read: "Wretched are the merciless, for they shall not receive mercy."
In this episode of People in Exile, Andrew, Ben, and Chris continue their discussion of the Sermon on the Mount. Specifically, they discuss five different interpretations of the Beatitudes, and whether or not they agree with any of these interpretations. Finally, they walk through how we see the gospel in the Beatitudes.
