The Beatitudes – Introduction
The Bible is such a deep book that if we gloss over any of it we miss out. The Beatitudes are some of the most ignored words of all that Jesus spoke. And yet, they are some of the most important.

Today we’re doing a series on The Beatitudes. And this is the introduction to that series. So, today, we’ll be answering the question, “What are the beatitudes?” I suppose the first thing to do to answer that question would be to read them. So you can find them in Matthew, the 5th chapter, beginning in verse 3. Here they are:
Mt. 5:3 – Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth. Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled. Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. And blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God.
