Sermon on the Mount: Oaths

Matthew 5v33-37

Matt Deisen | March 5, 2017 | Duration: 44 minutes


In Jesus day it was common for people to swear oaths to one another, and common to invoke high and holy things in order to demonstrate the gravity of your oath. But Jesus tells his followers to throw out the entire practice altogether, forcing us to ask, what lies at the heart of swearing by God, and why is it antithetical to the Kingdom?
