What Have You Heard?

As Jesus begins to teach his disciples how to live, it quickly becomes clear that while the Law of Moses and the Law that God has given to humanity is important—there is more to the way of Jesus. Over and over again, Jesus repeats the phrase “You have heard that it was said, but I tell you.” By doing so, Jesus invites us to join a new kingdom, one where all the wrong kinds of people are blessed by God, and so that we can seek something more than just following the rules. Jesus asks us to become like him—to become Christ-like. This is at the heart of what it means to follow Jesus: That we will become one with God as we begin to look and act like Jesus. So, what have you heard? Have you heard about the way of Jesus?
