Sermon on the Mount

In this section, we spend six weeks in the Sermon on the Mount (excluding the Beatitudes and the Lord’s Prayer) found in Matthew 5-7. As background, I have used Studies on the Sermon on the Mount by Oswald Chambers, The Lily of the Field and the Bird of the Air by Soren Kierkegaard, The Sermon on the Mount by Emmet Fox, and On the Sermon on the Mount by St. Augustine.
