(F. Dean Hackett) Reading the Sermon on the Mount (Matt. 5-7) can be intimidating. Who can live up to the standards Jesus set in that teaching? “For I say to you that unless your righteousness exceeds the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, you will in no way enter the kingdom of heaven” (Matt. 5:20). “But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment” (Matt. 5:22). “But I say to you that whoever looks on a woman to lust after her has committed adultery with her already in his heart” (Matt. 5:28).
