Exalting Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount is part of the Christ-Centered Exposition Commentary series. Edited by David Platt, Daniel L. Akin, and Tony Merida, this new commentary series, projected to be 48 volumes, takes a Christ-centered approach to expositing each book of the Bible. Rather than a verse-by-verse approach, the authors have crafted chapters that explain and apply key passages in their assigned Bible books.

Readers will learn to see Christ in all aspects of Scripture, and they will be encouraged by the devotional nature of each exposition presented as sermons and divided into chapters that conclude with a “Reflect & Discuss” section, making this series ideal for small group study, personal devotion, and even sermon preparation. It’s not academic but rather presents an easy reading, practical and friendly commentary.

  • Explains and applies key passages in their assigned Bible books
  • Provides a Christ-centered approach to expositing each book of the Bible
  • Features practical interpretation of the scripture, helping readers understand how historic text relates to our lives today

“Compromise is a deadly cancer to our witness to the world. When we are seduced by the sirens of materialism, political expediency, irresponsible rhetoric, moral laxity, or foolish actions, the attractiveness and beauty of the Christian life is lost. However, if we maintain our commitments and convictions to Christ with grace and humility, people will inevitably take notice.” (source)

“John Stott said at the Cape Town Lausanne Conference, ‘The greatest hindrance to the advance of the gospel worldwide is the failure of the lives of God’s people’” (source)

“The Beatitudes’ (5:3-12), eight declarations or pronouncements of blessing that possibly draw on Moses’s words in Deuteronomy 33:29. The word ‘beatitude’ comes from the Latin word beatus, meaning ‘happy’ or ‘blessed.’ The Greek word is makarios. The word captures the idea of those who are the fortunate and blessed recipients of God’s grace and favor (Quarles, Sermon, 42). It is, therefore, more than an emotion. As Donald Hagner notes, ‘It refers to the deep inner joy of those who have long awaited the salvation promised by God and who now begin to experience its fulfillment’ (Matthew 1–13, 91). For our study I will use the word delight. I believe it will serve us well.” (source)

“Sixth, it is the first of five major discourses in Matthew’s Gospel.” (source)

“With their 248 regulations and 365 prohibitions to fence and protect the law, their righteousness was only skin deep. It was outward and external. If verse 19 warns us about the danger of lawlessness, verse 20 warns us about the deadly danger of legalism. A Christian’s righteousness, however, is not skin deep. It goes to the heart. It is internal and spiritual.” (source)
