Sermon on the Mount

Jesus covers such an array of topics and truths in such a short space.  Every word turned conventional wisdom on its ear.  What you cannot hear?  ….the silence, the sheer awe, of those who heard him utter those words for the very first time.  What a hush must have fallen as told them, “Love your enemies.” How the quiet must have rang as he told them, “You are the light of the world.”  How I wish I was sitting among them as these gigantic ideas fell from Heaven.  I wonder how their hearts burned and their minds churned to drink in this brand new ocean of living water, poured out in refreshing simplicity.
