An investigation of the virtue ethics of the Bible, from the ancients through contemporary culture, with an emphasis on assessing our current cultural need, and on learning and living the qualities of character of a true believer in Christ during troubled times. We will study Christ’s standards for virtue from The Sermon on the Mount, Matthew 5: 3-11, two each week, determining how Christ’s blessings are applied to our life as Christians, growing in discipleship, becoming more conformed to his image.
