Bridges For Peace: Christians supporting Israel and building relationships

between Christians and Jews in Israel and around the world

The Sermon on the Mount

By Rev. Cheryl L. Hauer, Vice President

The Sermon on the Mount is a beautiful, poetic portion of Scripture found in the Gospel of Matthew. As I researched the topic, I was amazed to encounter the varied descriptions given to Jesus’ (Yeshua’s) sermon by Bible teachers and Christian apologists. It has been called Christ’s Idea of Righteousness, the Goal of Life, the Ideal Christian Life and the Constitution of Christianity. A.W.

Jeremiah 23:9  My heart within me is broken, all my bones shake. (JPS)

We are broken-hearted with you. There are no adequate words. You do not stand alone. Bible-believing Christians and Bridges for Peace friends in specific, know that this evil has touched the apple of God’s eye.  We grieve with you, we stand with you, and we tell all that you are not alone.

Psalm 147:3,6  Who healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds. The LORD upholdeth the humble; He bringeth the wicked down to the ground. (JPS)

We grieve with you, we stand with you, and we tell all that you are not alone.
