The Sermon on the mount.

Today our reading of Matthew contains some hyperbolic terms that linguistic explanation, and cultural knowledge is necessary to understand what we would consider “a bit much ” the people of those times used figurative and literal words , abstract thinking was considered a way to soften the message of great importance . Therefore weakening the strength of message. Jesus wanted this message strong !

Matthew 5 : 29….But if your right eye causes you to stumble (sin) pluck it out (not literal, see explanation above) for it is good to you , that one of your members may perish, and not your whole body be cast to gehenna.. this is an illustration, using literal words for emphasis.

Matthew 5 : 30…And if your right hand does cause you to stumble (sin) cut it off, ( again not literal. See explanation above ) for it is good that one of your members may perish, and not your whole body be cast into gehenna.

I encourage you to read these scriptures in your own Bible this is a non denomanatnal Translation. Agape love. Terry
