The Sermon on the Mount, Part 2

Welcome to Timeless Truth with Pastor Jim Thomas. This season, Pastor Jim is leading us in a study of The Sermon on the Mount.

The Sermon on the Mount is found in Matthew, chapters 5-7.

“For the essential theme of the whole Bible from beginning to end is that God’s historical purpose is to call out a people for himself; that this people is a ‘holy’ people, set apart from the world to belong to him and to obey him; and that its vocation is to be true to its identity, that is, to be ‘holy’ or ‘different’ in all its outlook and behavior.”
John Stott, The Sermon on the Mount

“Is not a sermon about an ideal life in an ideal world but about the kingdom life in a fallen world.”
Sinclair Ferguson.

“Jesus’s macarisms are grace-based, wisdom invitations to human flourishing in God’s coming kingdom.”
@DrJTPennington, The Sermon on the Mount and Human Flourishing

“Half our troubles are due to the fact that we live on the assumption that this is the only life and the only world. Of course we know that is not true; but there is a great difference between knowing a thing and really being governed and guided by that knowledge in our ordinary life and outlook.”
D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Studies in the Sermon on the Mount

“The Holy Spirit’s main ministry is not to give thrills but to create in us Christlike character.”
J. I. Packer
