The Sermon on the Mount: A Harmony of Matthew 5–7 and Luke 6:17–49


Portions of the Sermon on the Mount are found in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke. Below is a harmony of the two accounts that I prepared for use in a biography of Jesus I’m writing.

Reading this sermon in one sitting can be a tremendous soul training tool. I hope you will have the opportunity to spend some time this week prayerfully considering Jesus’s radical alternative to life in the rat race.

“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for it is to them that the kingdom of heaven belongs.

“Blessed are those who mourn, for it is they who will be comforted.

“Blessed are the meek, for it is they who will inherit the earth.
