Parallel Gospel Accounts

The Sermon on the Mount found in Matthew 5–7 is the most well-known sermon ever preached. In fact, many Christians commit the sermon to memory. Its words recall ancient truth and illuminate the heart of Jewish tradition, challenging both friend and foe to reconsider the purpose of the Law. But did you know there’s a similar, or even parallel, account recorded in Luke 6:17–49? When read carefully, it’s hard to miss the parallels as well as the differences. Do these Gospel accounts record separate sermons—or distinctive details from the same sermon?

In this week’s video, we will explore these parallel accounts and examine both their similarities and differences.
