Sermon on the Mount

by on Jul.16, 2017, under Israel, Uncategorized

This is located very near to where it is believed “The Sermon on the Mount” was given. It is very near the northern most point of the Sea of Galilee where the Jordan river enters the lake. It’s walking distance to Capernaum. It’s a few hundred yards from where the fishermen of the first century would have kept their boats.

Jesus says : “These words I speak to you are not incidental additions to your life, homeowner improvements to your standard of living. They are foundational words, words to build a life on. If you work these words into your life, you are like a smart carpenter who built his house on solid rock. Rain poured down, the river flooded, a tornado hit—but nothing moved that house. It was fixed to the rock. “But if you just use my words in Bible studies and don’t work them into your life, you are like a stupid carpenter who built his house on the sandy beach. When a storm rolled in and the waves came up, it collapsed like a house of cards.” When Jesus concluded his address, the crowd burst into applause. They had never heard teaching like this. It was apparent that he was living everything he was saying—quite a contrast to their religion teachers! This was the best teaching they had ever heard.”
