Matthew 5: “Blessed” vs “Happy”

Two thoughts on today’s reading. The first is something I penned a few weeks ago.

The word appears 50 times in the NT and in the is rendered “happy” only 5 times. The other 45 are “blessed,” as in being a recipient of divine favor.

Instead, I want to focus on the four prophecies fulfilled with Jesus’ birth and subsequent events in Matthew 2. The first prophecy concerns the birthplace of Jesus in Bethlehem as recorded in Matthew 2:1-6.…
