When Jesus had finished saying these things, the crowds were amazed at his teaching, because he taught as one who had authority, and not as their teachers of the law.
Are you amazed?
You should be. The teachings of Jesus are amazing. They are unlike any other teachings on this earth, from any other teacher that has ever lived. The crowd that day, that heard this sermon, recognized the difference. They knew that this was different than anything they had ever heard.
Maybe you have heard this sermon so many times that it has lost its edge. Please read back through and see what you think. I believe that if you open your eyes, you might be amazed once again.
