Sermon on the Mount (Hardcover)
about this item
This elegant facsimile captures the beauty of the original Victorian edition of one of The Bible's most important passages that appears in the Gospel according to St Matthew. It includes the most well known prayer of the Christian faith-the Lord's Prayer-as well as many of the central beliefs of Christian worship. Having preached throughout Galilee, Jesus led his disciples up the mountain and spoke to them about seeking the path towards perfection and how to behave in order to seek salvation. His words have influenced countless generations in terms of moral guidance, and have inspired numerous writers and thinkers, such as Mahatma Gandhi, who believed that Jesus spoke of merits of pacifism, as in His advice that if someone should strike another, then that person should turn the other cheek and not retaliate.
