Jesus' Sermon on the Mount

Full Product Description

The Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5:7) is the best-known repository of the teachings of Jesus and one of the most studied. Amid the considerable erudition expended on the Sermon, however, Jack R. Lundbom argues that it has proven too easy to deflect or disregard the main thrust of the Sermon, which he characterizes as a mandate to holy living and a "greater righteousness." Through careful attention to the structure of Matthew's Gospel and the place of the Sermon within it, keen sensitivity to the patterns and themes of Israelite prophecy, and judicious comparisons with other Jewish and rabbinic literature, Lundbom elucidates the meaning of the Sermon and its continuity with Israel's prophetic heritage as well as the best of Jewish teaching. By deft appeal to Christian commentators on the Sermon, Lundbom brings its most important themes to life for the contemporary reader, seeking always to understand what the "greater righteousness" to which the Sermon summons might mean for us today.

Jesus' Sermon on the Mount by Jack R. Lundbom was published by Fortress Press,U.S. in January 2015. The ISBN for Jesus' Sermon on the Mount is 9781451493023.
