STUDIES IN THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT
BY MARTYN LLOYD-JONES (1899-1981)
He served for many years as minister of Westminster Chapel in London, England.
With characteristic insight, Martyn Lloyd-Jones offers here a detailed and comprehensive exposition of one of the best known but most frequently misunderstood passages of Scripture -- the Sermon on the Mount. The Sermon on the Mount is not a code of ethics or morals; it is a description of what Christians are meant to be. With his eye always on both Scripture and life, Lloyd-Jones both explains and applies Jesus' teaching for Christians struggling to live like Christ in the modern world.
Currently, we are on Chapter 18, Christ Fulfilling the Law and the Prophets
(Matthew 5:17-19 - Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. For
verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one
tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled. Whosoever
therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach
men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but
whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.)
And Jesus said to him, "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."
