When Jesus preached the Sermon on the Mount, the people had never heard anyone speak like this. The crowd was shocked at His teaching and authority. Was Jesus simply giving a great sermon that stunned His hearers or was He laying out the normal culture that was expected from all who would be citizens of His kingdom?
