Jesus has been traveling through the area of Galilee preaching, teaching and healing. As result word of him has spread throughout the area and people with various illnesses and disease are brought to him from far and wide. Jesus is drawing huge crowds from Galilee, Decapolis, Jerusalem, Judea and from across the Jordan who are following him wherever he goes.
On this particular day Jesus sees the crowds. He walks up a hillside so all can see him. He sits down and begins to teach.
Thus begins the introduction to the Sermon on the Mount. Jesus starts with the be attitudes which completely turn existing society 180 degrees.
In Jesus’ day you could easily tell whom God loved. Look at all that God had given them: power, prestige, wealth, family and friends, and the list goes on. But here, in the Beatitudes Jesus is tell the poor, the oppressed, the lowest levels of the Jewish society that God loves them, they are the salt of the earth and for their faith they will be rewarded.
