In the beginning of his Sermon on the Mount, Jesus pronounces a blessing on his disciples saying, "Blessed are the poor in spirit," "blessed are the meek," "blessed are the pure in heart," and so forth. But what does it mean to be meek or pure in heart, and how does one qualify for this kind of blessing? If only the pure in heart are blessed, how can any of us be saved? On this program, the hosts will address these questions as they conclude their discussion of the Beatitudes in their new series on the Sermon on the Mount.

The Sermon on the Mount is one of the most beloved and yet often misunderstood passages of the entire Bible. Many think of it as a blueprint for the gradual improvement of the human race through pacifism, love, and generosity. But is Jesus talking to the world in general or to his disciples in particular? Is this sermon exclusively about ethics or does it also include the gospel? How should we interpret the Sermon on the Mount? That's what's on tap for this edition of the White Horse Inn.
