Hello everyone! Pastor Alberta here. I’m delighted that so many are participating in the Matthew 5-7 challenge. I’m doing it too. We have well over a hundred people participating so far, and expect many more.
I have a thought or two:
• Consider reading the chapters from different translations. Try to use the NIV and the ESV and especially…after a few days…. the New Living Translation [NLT]. You can view these translations by going to biblegateway.com. If you have trouble doing so, let me know and I will send you an attachment of the chapters.
• Also, submit questions and observations to me and I will address them here on this blog.
• Finally, I suggest that you read the passages for a few days in a “clean” format…that is, without the benefit of a study Bible. It is good to let the Word of God sink in before we start to get all kinds of ideas from commentators.
Happy reading! Blessings!
