THE BEATITUDES OF JESUS
Sent in by a Catholic friend
Jesus Christ gave us the Eight Beatitudes in the Sermon on the Mount, recorded for all posterity in the Gospel of Matthew, the first Book of the New Testament of the Bible. Matthew’s Gospel was directed to an audience steeped in Hebrew tradition.

Jesus offers us a way of life that promises eternity in the Kingdom of Heaven.
