The Sermon on the Mount, recorded in the Gospel of Matthew, includes some of the most well-known teachings of Jesus. Christ Jesus didn’t come to replace Jewish law, but to fulfill it. Our Savior spoke in a way all could understand, but in this sermon, He pulled His disciples closer. Every word was intentional, and full of wisdom to live by, not just rules to religiously follow.
Jonathan Pennington wrote for The Gospel Coalition that “Jesus’s message in the sermon is that God is our Father who sees and cares about the heart, not just external righteous deeds and religion.”
