Dear Parish Family,
With this Sunday's Gospel reading, we move into the part of the Sermon on the Mount that scholars call the six antitheses. The label highlights the fact that here, six times in a row, the words of Jesus follow a pattern that goes, “You have heard that it was said … But I say to you … ” Here we meet Jesus asserting an authority even greater than that of Moses. In the rabbinic tradition, the greatest authority was Moses. Every teaching ended in asserting what Moses said and intended to say on the matter at hand. Let us take one example to understand the awe inspiring unique and fundamental teaching of Christ. Listen carefully to what Jesus says in the antithesis about murder. He begins by citing the commandment and its consequence: whoever kills will be liable to judgment. “Judgment” here is not punishment after death but a reference to the juridical process of a trial. The law says, “Kill and you shall be tried for it.” Jesus then asserts, “But I say to you, whoever is angry with his brother will be liable to the same judgment.”
