Blessed Are The Poor

Jesus began the Sermon on the Mount with a Beatitude: “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven.” Does this mean that the Kingdom of Heaven is open only to those who are poverty stricken? In this lesson, Dr. Sproul explains that this phrase would have resonated with Christ’s audience, and teaches us what it means to be poor in spirit today.
