Welcome to Episode 44 of the Among Women “Espresso Shot”
– a short strong coffee break of faith sharing and teaching from Pat Gohn.
Today’s topic: The Beatitudes – “Blessed are who are persecuted for righteousness sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
In this espresso shot, I examine the final Beatitude in this series from Matthew 5:10: “Blessed are who are persecuted for righteousness sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”
This is the last podcast in a 9-podcast series devoted to reviewing the eight Beatitudes that open Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount in the Gospel of Matthew. In this podcast, as with the previous ones in this series, I’m examining how this important beatitude not only reflects Jesus and his lived experience, but it also has import for the Christian life, while it very obviously points us toward heaven.
