The Sermon on the Mount is a collection of sayings and teachings of Jesus, which emphasizes his moral teaching found in the Canonical Gospel of Matthew. According to chapters Template:Bibleverse-nb, Jesus of Nazareth gave this sermon (estimated around AD 30) on a mountainside to his disciples and a large crowd. Matthew groups Jesus' teachings into five discourses, of which the Sermon on the Mount is the first. The others concern instructions for the disciples, parables of the Kingdom, instructions for the church, and a harsh denunciation of scribes and Pharisees.
