Quotes and Links mentioned:
- “This is the remarkable impact of the Sermon on the Mount. It is intensely life-challenging. It is a profoundly disturbing indictment of the religious establishment, those who have attempted to establish their own pious enterprise that has supplanted God’s original intention. It is also an amazing challenge to the crowds, those attracted to Jesus’ uniquely authoritative pronouncement about life’s realities but not yet placing their faith in him. And it is the highest aspiration, the most realistic guideline of life, for Jesus’ disciples, who will find that Jesus’ words in the Sermon on the Mount are a continual fount of God’s guidance as they live out the wondrous reality of life in the kingdom of heaven.” — Frederick Dale Bruner
- “The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult; and left untried.” — G.K. Chesterton
