Sermon on the Mount: The Message of the Kingdom (Preaching the Word)
Hughes, R. Kent
“I’m delighted to endorse the philosophy behind this series. Here sounds out the voice not of the scholar in the study but of the scholar in the pulpit. The authors are all able teachers who regularly expound God’s living Word to his people. May this rich material give us ‘patterns of preaching’ that will not only feed the flock, but, by God’s grace, change the church.”See All

“It is a pleasure to commend this series of homiletical commentaries. They fill an enormous vacuum that exists between the practical needs of the pastor/teacher and the critical exegetical depth of most commentaries.”See All

Do you want to know what kind of character you should have as a Christian? What ought to define your outer way of life and your inner habit of mind?
Within the Gospel of Matthew, the Sermon on the Mount speaks directly to those questions, exposing us to truths that stand to test us and bring new relevance to our lives. Perhaps there is no other section of Scripture that so directly brings you face to face with your own humanity and the grace of salvation as the Sermon.
In this classic commentary, now revised with a fresh look and ESV Bible references, pastor Kent Hughes faithfully explores the words that penetrate our hearts, and brings forth the lessons from this matchless model of the Christian life. Both humbling and encouraging, it is the greatest message ever preached.
