BMS UpdatesVerse of the Day (June 9, 2020) 9 Jun 2020 Eduardo Marin, D.Min. Verse of the Day (June 9, 2020) #BMSeminary – The closing section of the Sermon on the Mount presents two choices to the listener. These are presented in a series of contrasts: two ways (vv. 13, 14); two trees (vv. 15–20); two professions (vv. 21–23); and two foundations (vv. 24–29). This was a common method of teaching in both Jewish and Greco-Roman thought. Enter ye in at the strait gate (narrow) means that one must come through the narrow gate in order to reach the path that leads to eternal life. Though many are on the broad . . . way, that leadeth to destruction (eternal separation from God), the gate that leads to life is so narrow that few there be that find it. Christ Himself is both the gate and the way (cf. John 14:6), and God enables men to find that gate (cf. John 6:44).
