My Heart is for Israel

Sitting at the Feet of Yeshua

In this post, we will continue our study of the Sermon on the Mount by turning to Matthew 7.  Yeshua closes the Sermon on the Mount with a discussion on judgment.  In it, He discusses three different judgments:  our judgment of ourselves; our judgment of others; and, finally God’s judgment of us.

In His teaching, Yeshua gives us the characteristics of the true Believer and contrasts them with the hypocrisy of the religious people.  Throughout this sermon, the P’rushim were used as examples of religious hypocrisy.  They had established a righteousness of works.  People who judge the most are those who feel superior on the basis of their self-righteousness.
