Woke TGC Contributor Suggests Mary Taught Jesus The Sermon On The Mount

Mika Edmondson is a frequent Gospel Coalition contributor and the lead pastor of the Koinonia” campus of Christ Presbyterian Church in Nashville, which is part of the conservative PCA. He is the husband of Christina Edmonson, who is the “scholar in residence” at his church and who is also part of the Truth’s Table podcast- a ‘Christian” talk show which she co-hosts with pro-choice, pro-LGBTQ pastrix known for her sermon about the queerness of the Trinity

During a panel discussion on “Race And Justice” last year for the Q Ideas conference, Edmondson insists that “Christian men must sit at the feet of Christian women” and suggests that Jesus’s Sermon On The Mount was primarily inspired by, if not directly taught by, his mother Mary.”

I went to Johannesburg, South Africa…The pastor that was there that was helping to host us, he drove us from the airport…I noticed this large hill in the distance, and it had a completely flat top. He said, “You see that hill?” And I said, “Yeah.” He said that’s not a natural thing, that’s a man-made hill. That’s a mine dump where they would take material from the diamond trade and they would just dump it from this particular area.

I said, “Oh, wow.” He said, “But you know why it’s put right here?” I said, “Why?” He said the reason this mine dump is here is because the township of Soweto is on the other side. And the white South Africans, when they were coming into Johannesburg, did not want to look at the township on the other side. And so the mine dump keeps them from having to reckon with the human cost of their oppressive system.

And I would suggest that a lot of theology is like that mine dump. A lot of theology is constructed in such a way that it keeps us from having to reckon with the human cost of injustice, particularly racial injustice in America.

We have a theology that has comfortably co-existed with 250 years of chattel slavery, with Jim Crow, with the lynching tree, with segregation, with mass incarceration, with any number of things that you can name.

And you say, “Well, how can that be?” Well, it’s a theology that was deliberately constructed to be blind in certain places. So we say, why is it that the church is behind on issues of race? It’s because the theology is working as designed. And what that means is we need another theology, a biblical theology that actually tells us the truth and allows us to see the township.

It’s amazing that Jesus, when he was born, would [sic] chose to be born in a township.

So this issue is a big issue. It causes for us to listen to one another. Christian men must listen, they must sit at the feet of Christian women, because when they read the Bible and when the Lord speaks to them, they’re gonna see some things that we as men would not see. It’s significant that the first Bible teacher that Jesus had was his mother. That’s significant, right? I mean, we don’t hear much about Joseph’s Bible teaching to Jesus. But the Magnificat, Mary’s song she sang in praise to God, the themes of the Magnificat is [sic] coming all out on the Sermon On The Mount. And you say, “Wait, where did he get that?” Well, Jesus got that from his mother, who the Father used to speak to the Son.
