A10: The Fourth Sunday after the Epiphany, Year A (2017)

Jim Somerville

Jim Somerville, Pastor of Richmond’s First Baptist Church and Co-Founder of A Sermon for Every Sunday, preaches a sermon called “The Power to Bless,” from Matthew 5:1-12. Matthew presents Jesus as the “Prophet like Moses,” that many in Israel were waiting for. Jesus goes up on a mountain, just like Moses, but instead of bringing the Ten Commandments down, he sits down, and begins to bless the people.
