The man of St Matthew

THE GOSPEL OF MATTHEW

THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT

Chapter 7: Overview

We saw earlier that The Golden Rule in 7,12 gives us a conclusion. The saying ends the second part of the Sermon on the Mount, 6,19-7,12.

Thus the first part of our reading of this chapter will be 7,1-12. These verses continue our reading of 6,19-34.

We will then read on a second page the rest of the chapter, 7,13-29. These verses form the finale to the Sermon on the Mount, ending with the statement about the authority of Jesus' teaching, 7,28-29.

We can now go straight on to read the first part of the chapter, Mt 7,1-12.
