Overview

The Sermon on the Mount is the best-known and most frequently studied repository of Jesus’ teachings. Amid the considerable erudition expended on the Sermon, however, Jack R. Lundbom argues that scholars have deflected or disregarded the main thrust of the sermon, which he characterizes as a mandate to holy living and a “greater righteousness.” Through careful attention to the structure of Matthew’s Gospel and the place of the Sermon on the Mount within it and judicious comparisons with Jewish and rabbinic literature, Lundbom elucidates Jesus’ message and its continuity with Israel’s prophetic heritage and Jewish teaching. Appealing to Christian commentators, Lundbom brings its most important themes to life for the contemporary reader, seeking always to understand what the “greater righteousness” to which Jesus summons us might mean for today.
