Brad & Roger Wilcox

In this discussion with Brad and Roger, we talk about their book, Blessed Are Ye, and discuss how the Beatitudes from the Sermon on the Mount outline the covenant path. Brad and Roger recount touching personal experiences with everything from popularity to persecution as they bless us all with their spiritual knowledge.

Jesus started each Beatitude with the word blessed. It is the English translation of the Latin beatus, meaning “fortunate” or “happy.” However, considering its Hebrew roots, the word can also mean “holy”--even “exalted.” As we study the Beatitudes, they become much more than simply good advice, a code of ethics, or hopeful words for the downtrodden. They can be a holy invitation from Christ Himself to enter a covenant relationship with Him, receive His grace, and become like Him.
