The next Sojourn Church women’s Bible study will be starting on March 3, 2021, with the group meeting at the O’Shea house on Wednesday evenings from 7:00 to 8:30 pm.
The subject this time around is the Sermon on the Mount, a “sermon” that Jesus preached as recorded in the New Testament book of Matthew, chapters 5-7.
The curriculum we’ll be using is Sermon on the Mount by Jen Wilkin, published by The Gospel Coalition Women’s Initiatives and Lifeway. This study is a combination of videos and a workbook, along with your Bible, and is arranged in nine sessions. Materials will be provided by Sojourn Church.
What does it mean to be a citizen of the kingdom? Matthew’s Gospel contains Jesus’ longest recorded message—a sermon given to his disciples early in his ministry to articulate what the life of a Christ follower would look like. . . . In his sweeping depiction of kingdom citizenship, Jesus utters some of the most familiar passages in all of Scripture. Most of us have only encountered the Sermon on the Mount in fragments, considering its subdivisions as complete teachings in their own right—a study on blessedness, a reflection on the Lord’s Prayer, a meditation on lilies of the field. But what if we navigated these three chapters as they were originally heard: as one cohesive, well-ordered message, intended to challenge us to think differently about repentance, salvation, and sanctification? This 9-week study led by Jennifer Wilkin does just that. Seat yourself on a mountainside to learn at the feet of Jesus. Ask for ears to hear and a heart to respond to the teaching of our King.
