Jesus delivered the Sermon on the Mount over 2,000 years ago, and today much of it is ingrained in the public consciousness. Phrases like “turn the other cheek,” “blessed are the poor,” “the salt of the earth,” “the light of the world,” “judge not that you not be judged,” are often casually tossed about. Often, those who quote these lines, use them completely out of context. Jim Oliver explores these statements as well as the entire sermon in the sociological context of Jesus, and the Greek language Matthew and Luke used to quote Jesus. Oliver seeks to discover the meaning behind all of the words in the Sermon, and to find out how we can apply them in today’s world.
