Publisher's Summary

The Beatitudes. The Golden Rule. The Lord's Prayer.

These are just a few of the central teachings contained within the Sermon on the Mount. Undoubtedly, the sermon is one of the most powerful parts of the New Testament. Most of us, however, know the Sermon on the Mount only in segments, like the famous sections mentioned above. Now you will hear the sermon as a powerful and profound whole.

Your presenter, Father Hamm, SJ, draws from his new book, Building Our House on Rock: The Sermon on the Mount as Jesus' Vision for Our Lives, as told by Matthew and Luke, to guide you through the Gospel. You will look at the Sermon on the Mount as carefully packaged and presented by Matthew, as illuminated by other passages in his Gospel, and by the culture of first-century Palestine.

You will also explore Luke's smaller version, called "the Sermon on the Plain", paying particular attention to Luke's context. Luke presents many of the sayings that appear in Matthew's Sermon, and Fr. Hamm helps you appreciate the way Luke gives these familiar sayings a fresh setting. These lectures further illuminate Jesus' words against the background of the Old Testament, thus bringing you closer to what these sayings meant to their original audiences. With one of Catholicism's leading bible scholars, discover the enduring power of the Sermon on the Mount today.
