About The Sermon on the Mount:
Discover anew the power and meaning of Jesus’ most famous sermon. Emphasizing the historical distance between the New Testament and our contemporary culture, The Sermon on the Mount by Scot McKnight, part of the new The Story of God Bible Commentary series, offers helpful contextual insights for those seeking to discern how to live out the Bible in today’s world. The Sermon on the Mount is the moral portrait of Jesus’ own people. Moving away from traditional “application” Bibles, which have been criticized as being too simplistic, McKnight emphasizes the distance between the New Testament and contemporary culture. His clear, compelling exposition folds us into the great story of God in its canonical setting so that we can make more faithful decisions about Christian life.

About the Series:
The Story of God Bible Commentary (SGBC) provides pastors, Sunday school teachers, small group leaders, and committed Bible students with a clear and compelling exposition of Scripture, setting each passage in context of the Bible’s narrative arc.

The authors of this series study and probe the Bible as God’s story, to discern and then articulate how we can live the Bible’s story faithfully and creatively in the culture today.
If we are to discover the contemporary meaning of the Bible, we must engage with it in several ways: reading, studying, questioning, and wrestling with the text. The Story of God Bible Commentary will assist you in these tasks.

This series offers vital tools for you to understand the original context of biblical passages; to carry insights from the biblical world and ancient Near Eastern literature straight into your context today; and finally, to empower you to discern and communicate biblical insight to your small group or congregation.

Each commentary is broken into three sections:

  • Listen to the Story presents the Bible passage in the New International Version (NIV).
  • Interpret the Story examines the passage for its essential message and meaning.
  • Live the Story explores how we can live this text in the world today. It offers insightful reflections, illustrations, and practical suggestions for daily Christian life and practice.

You’ll experience the uniqueness of The Story of God Bible Commentary as it helps you read the Bible in light of Christ’s incarnation, encounter theology of the great traditions of the church, and engage with faithful and insightful voices of the global church.
