SERMON ON THE MOUNT... The complete Sermon on the Mount covers all of chapters 5, 6, and ; 7 of the book of Matthew. It will be quoted in its entirety at the end of this commentary. It is not the way of salvation for the sinner, nor the rule of ;life for the Christian. When the Lord Jesus preached it, He had not ;yet established ;His ; Church. The Sermon on the Mount is ;Law, ;and ;the Christian ;is ;not under Law but under grace. If the Sermon ;on ;the Mount then be neither the way of life for the sinner nor the rule of life ; for the believer, but is Law, then it becomes evident that ; it is the code of laws for the Kingdom of heaven, which Kingdom, though for ; the time being rejected, will one day be set up on this ;earth. Its capital will be Jerusalem, and the Law shall go forth from Zion. In that day ";The Lord will be king over the whole earth. On that day there ;will ;be one Lord, and his name the ; only ; name";. ; (Zechariah 14:9; see also Psalm 2:6; Jeremiah 23:5). ZEC ; 14:9 ; The LORD will be king over the whole earth. On ; that ;day there will be one LORD, and his name the only name. PSA 2:6 ; ";I have installed my King on Zion, my holy hill."; JER ; 23:5 ; ; ";The days are coming,"; [INVALID]s the LORD, ";when ; I ; will raise ;up to David a righteous Branch, a King who will reign ;wisely and do what is just and right in the land. In ; the ; Sermon on the Mount there is this King, ; Jehovah-Jesus ; (or Lord-Jesus), ;formally ; offering the Kingdom to Israel, in ; His ; own person. ; The offer is made in Galilee, for it had already ; been ;offered ;by John the Baptist in Judea and rejected. The King, in ; this great ; discourse, ; plainly ; sets forth the nature ; of ; the ; proposed Kingdom, and the laws by which He will govern the earth when He ; re-establishes and occupies the throne of David upon His return to this earth. However, ;there is value in the Sermon on the Mount to ;the ;Church, for it is part of Scripture, and all Scripture is valuable (2 ; Timothy 3:16-17). 2TI 3:16 ; All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for ; teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 2TI ; 3:17 ; ; so that the man of God may be ; thoroughly ; equipped ; for every good work. Believers, who are members of His Church, are destined to reign over the ; Kingdom, and therefore should be deeply interested in the ;laws of ;the Kingdom. In addition, many eternal principles are ;expressed in ; the sermon which are always operative; it is true even now ;that the ; poor ; in ; spirit are ";blessed";; that those who ; mourn, ;in ; the fellowship ; of ; His sufferings, shall be comforted; and it is ; true that the merciful shall obtain mercy, and that the pure in heart ;do see God. While Luke gives a sermon somewhat similar, it is not the same, ;and the Sermon on the Mount appears only in Matthew, where it is fitting that the laws of the Kingdom should be recorded in the Gospel of the Kingdom. The following is the entire ";Sermon on the Mount"; as recorded in the Gospel of Matthew Chapters 5, 6, and 7.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ====================================================================  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; THE BEATITUDES

 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; of heaven.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT 5:4 ; Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT 5:5 ; Blessed are the meek, for they will inherit the earth.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT 5:6 ; Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for ; righteousness,
 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; for they will be filled.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT 5:7 ; Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT 5:8 ; Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT ; 5:9 ; Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called ; sons
 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; of God.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT 5:10 ; Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteous-
 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT 5:11 ; ";Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and
 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT ; 5:12 ; ; Rejoice ; and be glad, because great is ; your ; reward ; in
 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; heaven, ; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets ; who ; were
 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; before you.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; SALT AND LIGHT

 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good ; for
 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; anything, except to be thrown out and trampled by men.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT ; 5:14 ; ";You are the light of the world. A city on a hill ; cannot
 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; be hidden.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT ; 5:15 ; Neither do people light a lamp and put it under ; a ; bowl.
 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone ; in
 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; the house.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT ; 5:16 ; ; In the same way, let your light shine before ; men, ; that
 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; THE FULFILLMENT OF THE LAW

 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by ; any
 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT ; 5:19 ; Anyone who breaks one of the least of these ; commandments
 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the ; king-
 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; dom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will
 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; be called great in the kingdom of heaven.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT ; 5:20 ; For I tell you that unless your ; righteousness ; surpasses
 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certain-

 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; 'Do not murder, and anyone who murders will be subject to judgment.'  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT ; 5:22 ; But I tell you that anyone who is angry with his ; brother
 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to his ; brother,
 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; 'Raca,' ; is answerable to the Sanhedrin. But anyone who ; says, ; 'You
 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; fool!' will be in danger of the fire of hell.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT 5:23 ; ";Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and
 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; there remember that your brother has something against you,  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT 5:24 ; leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go ; and

 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; the officer, and you may be thrown into prison.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT 5:26 ; I tell you the truth, you will not get out until you ; have

 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; has already committed adultery with her in his heart.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT ; 5:29 ; ; If your right eye causes you to sin, gouge ; it ; out ; and
 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; throw ; it away. It is better for you to lose one part of ; your ; body
 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; than for your whole body to be thrown into hell.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT ; 5:30 ; And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off ; and

 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; persecute you,  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT ; 5:45 ; that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He ; causes

 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; trumpets, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and on the streets,
 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; to be honored by men. I tell you the truth, they have received their
 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; reward in full.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT ; 6:3 ; But when you give to the needy, do not let your left ; hand
 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; know what your right hand is doing,  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT 6:4 ; so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who
 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; sees what is done in secret, will reward you.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; ; PRAYER

 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; be ; seen ; by ; men. I tell you the truth, they ; have ; received ; their

 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees ; what
 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; is done in secret, will reward you.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT 6:7 ; And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for
 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; they think they will be heard because of their many words.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT ; 6:8 ; Do not be like them, for your Father knows what ; you ; need
 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; before you ask him.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT 6:9 ; ";This, then, is how you should pray: ";'Our Father in ; heav-

 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; evil one.'  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT ; 6:14 ; ; For if you forgive men when they sin against ; you, ; your
 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; heavenly Father will also forgive you.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; MAT 6:15 ; But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will
 ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; not forgive your sins.  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ;  ; FASTING
