The Teachings of Jesus: The Sermon on the Mount

An open Bible rests on a stone.

The Sermon on the Mount is Jesus’ longest, most detailed teaching recorded in the Gospels. It is found in Matthew, chapters 5, 6 and 7. It contains some of the most essential principles for a truly radical but practical way of living a genuine Christian life.

In his introduction, Jesus shares not only some basic challenging lessons about happiness, he also draws a vivid portray of the kind of person, his disciples are meant to be. People not only with a different mentality, but also people with a clear sense of mission in this world.

Central to Jesus’ thinking is his understanding of the Kingdom of God, and what it means for us to live a life according to the righteousness of God. Some key ethical issues are dealt with with clarity and sensitivity to provide wisdom and understanding for everyone, both those having faith already and those in search of thoughtful answers.

Following Jesus is always about practicing the righteousness of God in the daily life of the disciple. Seeing the world as Jesus does involves an immersion in the three pillars of Jewish piety: alms-giving, prayer, and fasting. With great lucidity and prophetic insights, Jesus outlines some of the major questions faced by everyone in real life (e.g. forgiveness, possessions, worries).
