Jesus could not have picked a better place to sow seeds of faith than on the hill now called the Mount of Beatitudes. On a carpet of wildflowers and scrub, the people sat captivated, amazed at this Teacher. While rabbis of the day taught the finer points of Mosaic Law, Jesus’s message touched the heart. The rabbis’ endless, dusty rhetoric said little; Jesus’s few words altered the way the people understood life. Jesus’s words, ignited by the Spirit of God, still cut through the stuff of life and call us to live as God intends for us to live.
