In this second episode of a new bonus series of the MARKED podcast, we’re bringing you Session 2 of Jen Wilkin’s Sermon on the Mount Bible study. You’ll want to be sure to get a Bible study book at LifeWay.com/SermonOnTheMount to get the most out of these teaching sessions.
In this second session of the study, Jen dissects the eight short statements that form the opening to Jesus’ longest recorded message—the Beatitudes. You will look at them with fresh eyes, asking yourself why, of all the ways Jesus could have begun His inaugural address to His disciples, He begins with a list of blesseds.
For the next 9 weeks, we’ll be releasing the nine audio sessions of Sermon on the Mount Bible study on the MARKED podcast. Sermon on the Mount is the first of five studies Jen has published with LifeWay, and she has graciously granted us permission to play the audio here. Please note that this is copyrighted material—we ask that you not reproduce it.
The audio you’ll hear comes directly from the video teaching sessions for the study. You can treat this similar to an online Bible study—tell your friends and gather a group to discuss what you’re learning each week!
For the full impact of the study, you’ll want to get the Bible study workbook. You can purchase the book at LifeWay.com/SermonOnTheMount. We have a sample session at LifeWay.com/SermonOnTheMount if you want to use that this week while you wait for your book to come in the mail.
You can find all of Jen Wilkin’s LifeWay Bible studies at LifeWay.com/JenWilkin.
