Nowhere is the essence of Jesus’ teachings more clearly portrayed than in His Sermon on the Mount. In this course, learners complete an expository and reading study of the Sermon as found in Matthew 5-7. Students examine key issues in the Sermon and analyze the various interpretations therein. The lectures concentrate on both theological and practical questions raised in the Sermon, such as “How did Christ fulfill the law?” and “How should Christians relate to their world?” Throughout the course, Dr. Scott encourages learners to apply the Sermon’s principles to life and ministry.
