The Sermon on the Mount is a collection of Jesus' teachings to a group of simple people who followed him everywhere. It is not a theological dissertation for intellectuals, nor a discourse delivered in some elegant college or palace of the time. It is, as the title implies, a talk on the mountain. In direct, simple and often incandescent language, Jesus rewrites everything people knew about God up to that point. These words have been so influential that with them Jesus founds a new period in human history.
Jordan Peterson describes it as "the closest description of what it would mean to walk with God so that you’re in the Ark when your personal flood comes."
