The Sermon on the Mount, Matthew 5-7, contains some of Jesus’ most profound and most memorable teachings. What might these teachings have meant to his disciples and to the others who first heard them? How do they enhance our reading of the rest of the Gospel of Matthew, and how do they speak across the centuries to listeners today? How, if we pay careful attention to his words, does Jesus provide us a road map to living as God would have us live?
In Sermon on the Mount: A Beginner's Guide to the Kingdom of Heaven, Dr. Amy-Jill Levine introduces the major topics in the Sermon on the Mount, explains historical and theological contexts, and shows how the words of Jesus echo his Jewish tradition and speak forward to reach hearts and minds today. The book provides a rich and challenging learning experience for the individual reader and makes a wonderful, six-week group study with the additional Leader Guide, DVD, and 40-day readings.
This collection of 40 daily readings is drawn from Levine’s teachings on the Sermon on the Mount. Containing additional stories, insights, and lessons from the author, the readings further illuminate the wisdom of Jesus’ most famous sermon.
