Experiencing the Sermon on the Mount

On Friday, middle school students in Mr. Rogers’ 8th grade Bible class experienced the Sermon on the Mount. Students have been studying Matthew 5-7 in class so they went out in front of Founders Hall to sit in a kind of outdoor amphitheater, similar to the setting Jesus gave the sermon in so many years ago. Students each read aloud a section from the sermon so that everyone could have the opportunity to hear the word and reflect on its meaning. In this way, students could hear the word and experience it in a way that was more true to the people hearing it for the first time.
