Doing the Will of the Father

Yeshua said to His disciples that were gathered around Him at Capernaum that those who do the will of the Father are His mother, brothers, and sisters. After this, Yeshua took His disciples apart from the crowds and taught them more about the importance of doing the will of the Father. Only those who do the will of the Father will enter the kingdom of heaven! These words come at the end of this particular teaching session of Yeshua’s that we call the Sermon on the Mount! What did Yeshua teach on this occasion about the kingdom of heaven and doing the will of the Father?

He Began to Teach Them

After Yeshua finalized the selection of His inner circle of twelve disciples, he set about to teach them how to continue His message of “repent, for the kingdom of God is near.” Already Yeshua’s reputation was growing rapidly throughout the land but especially in the Galilee region.  Large crowds came from all around and followed Him where ever he went.  The sick and infirm, the troubled and the simply curious and the skeptical.  The Gospels record many instances of Yeshua fleeing the crowds alone or with His disciples to seek a place of solitude for prayer or teaching.  And so, it was in the hills above the northern shore of the Sea of Galilee, that Yeshua took His chosen twelve disciples and began to teach them in the ways of the Torah.

Humble Servant or Revolutionary Leader?

As word of Yeshua’s healings spread, He attracted more and more attention both good and bad. People from all over Jerusalem, Judea, and Galilee flocked to Him for healing. Pharisees and scribes sought Him out to hear this new teaching, but were angered when Yeshua challenged their interpretation and practice of the Torah. After one such instance when Yeshua corrected their hierarchy of following conflicting commandments in regards to Sabbath observance, a group of Pharisees took offense and decided to make trouble for Yeshua. What impact did this have on His ministry and how others perceived Him? Was Yeshua’s mission to be a humble servant, or a revolutionary leader?

The LORD of the Sabbath

As with today’s political climate, it was no different in the time of Yeshua and the disciples.  The corrupt leadership in Jerusalem were looking for anything that they could accuse Yeshua of doing that would conceivably be a violation of the law in order to discredit Him before the people.  The Jewish laws regarding the Sabbath were perhaps the most visible and strict set of rules that Jewish society had.  The Pharisees and scribes had prescribed a detailed listing of prohibited activities on the Sabbath.  The Gospel accounts of the life and ministry of Messiah Yeshua are full of incidents where Yeshua is accused of violating one law or another.

I Will Make You Fishers of Men

Yeshua and His ministry were gaining in recognition and popularity. After He cast out a demon from a man in a synagogue and followed that up with healing Simon Peter’s mother-in-law, crowds of people flocked to Him for deliverance and healing. Others followed Him to hear His words. He traveled throughout Galilee teaching in the synagogues. At the time of Yeshua, Rabbis would select disciples from among their followers who would, then, live with them and be taught intensely over a period of three years. They would have other students who would join them for short periods of time when they were able. Yeshua had not yet chosen disciples from among His many followers. Even Simon Peter, whom Yeshua stayed with while in Capernaum, continued in the family business of fishing. Who would Yeshua choose to be full time disciples from among the thousands who followed Him? What criteria would He use to choose His disciples? What cost would the disciples pay to follow Him?
