Publisher's Summary

Jesus Christ delivered the Sermon on the Mount to his disciples over 2,000 years ago, yet today people quote it so often that it has become idiomatic in our language. These quotes include "turn the other cheek", "blessed are the poor", "the salt of the Earth", "the light of the world", "judge not that you not be judged", and others. Often those who quote these lines take them completely out of context, misapplying them. One extreme example of a misapplication occurred to me some time ago. A man struck me on the cheek, just hard enough to smart a bit, then lifted his other hand to strike my other cheek, yelling, "Turn the other cheek! Turn the other cheek!"

This book explores these statements as well as the entire sermon from the perspective of the sociology of Jesus' era, the Greek vocabulary Matthew and Luke used to quote our Lord, and grammar and syntax. This author's task is to discover the meaning behind all of the words Jesus Christ spoke to his disciples in the sermon and to find out how we can apply them in today's world.

This abridged version, edited primarily for the audio version, leaves out most of the Greek and Hebrew vocabulary and accompanying word studies, leaving the conclusions based upon those studies. It is a simpler version, leaving out most of the technical language discussions.
