Matthew 5:1-12 Blessed are the poor in spirit

In our last study in Matthew we looked at the introduction to the Sermon on the Mount. Today Pastor Jeremy Ross moves on to the first of the Beatitudes: “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven”.

Prior to this Jesus was tempted by Satan and had begun to preach about repentance. Then Jesus begins to talk about being made happy and how we’re supposed to live the christian life.
