Klappentext:

Popularly known as the Sermon on the Mount, Matthew 5 7 has been described as the essence of Christianity and inspired many commentaries. However, New Testament professor Charles Quarles believes a fair number of those volumes either present Christ s sermon as containing an impossible spiritual ethic or instead dilute its message so much that hardly any ethical challenge remains. Also of concern, a recent Gallup poll indicated only one-third of American adults recognize Jesus as the source of this teaching that has often inspired people who do not even embrace evangelical Christianity.
Quarles s new analysis fills the space between these extremes by dealing with the important questions of whether believers can live by the Sermon on the Mount today and, if so, how. Looking at the Beatitudes, what it means to be salt and light, and the demand for superior righteousness, he writes to restore this crucial section of our Lord s teaching to its proper place in His church.
Quarles remains humble before the demands of Scripture, providing many insights through close attention to the text. The work is also very readable and highlights the relevance of Matthew s message. Sensitive to both ancient Jewish context and modern application, this commentary will be valuable for preachers. It draws from the Old Testament, early Judaism, and Greek, and offers key insights into Matthew s Christology.
