Sermon on the Mount Bible Commentary

The Sermon on the Mount is the moral portrait of Jesus’ own people. Because this portrait doesn’t square with the church, this Sermon turns from instruction to indictment… This commentary has been written with the simple goal that God will use this book to lead us to become in real life the portrait Jesus sketched in the Sermon.

– Scot McKnight

Like the Thessalonians, we are sometimes tempted to lose hope and give up. It is in such situations that these ancient letters find new life… The death and resurrection of Jesus underpins everything Paul argues in [1 Thessalonians].
