Event description

Description

'The Sermon on the Mount: Kingdom Living to the Full’

with Robyn Bain

Together we will be working through a process for observing and interpreting the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7) as a whole we can use as we read God’s Word with others. As we dig into God’s word together Robyn will help us to develop a process for applying the passage in different ministry contexts for women. In particular, her focus will be on helping women grow in everyday obedience, being in every way dependent on Christ, and encouraging others to grow with them.


Session 1 (90mins): The Pillars of the SOM

- Brief introduction –

  • our challenges in understanding and applying the Sermon on the Mount – and ‘instruction rich’ passages more generally
  • the challenges we face pursuing righteousness in our context
  • The process for understanding and applying we will develop over the day

- The context of the Matthew 5-7 with a focus on Christology (interactive)

- Key Question - What is the Sermon on the Mount actually about?

- Unpacking foundational sections/pillars (involves small group work):

  • Matthew 5:1-12 - the lens of the sermon (main focus)
    • Key ideas – Kingdom, blessing
  • Matthew 5:13-16 – discipleship in this world
    • Key ideas – light and salt in the world/earth
  • Matthew 7:13-29 – Jesus’ conclusion
    • Key idea – two ways
  • Matthew 5:17-20 – Christ and the law
    • Key ideas – Christ, law and grace, righteousness
  • Matthew 5:48; 7:12 – big calls
    • Key ideas – God’s standards

- Summary – the pillars of the SOM

Session 2 (90 mins): The Body of the Sermon

- Key Question: How does knowing Jesus shape what I do, what I’m like and what I want?

- The ‘counter-stories’ and ‘alternative pillars’ that can occupy our hearts and minds

- Work through 5:21-48 (Kingdom relationships); 6:1-8 &16-19 (subtle traps for disciples); and 6:19-7:12 (Kingdom perspectives) via this process:

  • Work through a demonstration scenario together
  • Various ministry scenarios related to the text (small groups)
    • Stepping back to observe and understand and the section of text
    • Applying the depth of the text to the scenario – actions, character and desires


Session 3 (75mins): Dependence on our Father

- The Lord’s Prayer (6:9-15) – Jesus’ guide to depending on our Father in prayer

  • prayer in groups

- Demonstration talk on Matthew 5:1-16 with reflection on process of writing

- Questions and Reflection
