THE BEATITUDES - FROM THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT
Matthew 5:1-11 The Beatitudes – According To Matthew
1: And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him:
2: And he opened his mouth, and taught them, saying,
3: Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
4: Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
5: Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.
6: Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
7: Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
8: Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.
9: Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.
10: Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11: Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
Anne Terri's Notes- The Beatitudes:
When going through all the lessons, and Parables of Jesus, I was not yet aware at the time I read Matthew, of how the lessons degenerated into what God Has Allowed Me To Place in red text. This means, that some of what was written, as being taught by Jesus Christ, has now become part of my study on How They Made The Crucifixion Fit The Prophecies of The Old Testament. These areas will also be placed in red text, and the link provided at the end of this study.
For this reason, I have chosen, With God, to show you more lines than the Bible Scholars accept as the Beatitudes. For example, in Matthew 5:1-11, where each sentence begins with the word, ''Blessed'', for it illustrates my point on where the Beatitudes seem to fall into the red zone. This has also occurred in Luke 6:22.
Based on a text found in 1 Peter 4:14, some of this was probably added after The Crucifixion of Jesus Christ.
God: ''Jesus taught The Beatitudes, Through Me. For the first time, I have Given Anne permission to place this in blue text:
Luke 6: 12-22 The Beatitudes – According To Luke
12: And it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God.
13: And when it was day, he called unto him his disciples: and of them he chose twelve, whom also he named apostles;
14: Simon, (whom he also named Peter,) and Andrew his brother, James and John, Philip and Bartholomew,
15: Matthew and Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon called Zelotes,
16: And Judas the brother of James, and Judas Iscariot, which also was the traitor.
17: And he came down with them, and stood in the plain, and the company of his disciples, and a great multitude of people out of all Judaea and Jerusalem, and from the sea coast of Tyre and Sidon, which came to hear him, and to be healed of their diseases;
18: And they that were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed.
19: And the whole multitude sought to touch him: for there went virtue out of him, and healed them all.
20: And he lifted up his eyes on his disciples, and said, Blessed be ye poor: for yours is the kingdom of God.
21: Blessed are ye that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh.
22: Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man's sake.
Anne Terri's Notes: Poor In Spirit Versus Poor.
Many compare Matthew 5:3 with Luke 6:20, for when you see them side by side, you find an entirely different perspective. The word poor has many meanings, depending on the context. For us in this day, poor means without money, or even health. When you add the word spirit behind it, as in Matthew 5:3, you find confusion. I believe, when Jesus also taught about God being a Spirit, and belief in God in this way, that he was intending to raise Spiritualism to a higher level. This could have been either mistranslated, or written down quickly not realizing it was now what Jesus intended.
Anne Terri's Question: On The Meek Inheriting The Earth (Matt 5:5)
Is this possible, especially with the greed rampant not only in Jesus' time, but also in our own time, 2009. With God, anything is possible. However, our goal should be to inherit the chance to be a part of the Kingdom Of Heaven, as a reward for following God's Will and Commandments. Therefore, I am also curious if this to was a good translation?
