Matthew 5 Commentary (part 1)


by Stephen Manley


The Cross Style Commentary Series combines expositional study in the Word of God with practical application for real-world living.



Approaching the Sermon on the Mount causes trembling. The content of the three chapters absolutely boggles the mind. At the close of the sermon, the people were astonished (Matthew 7:28). They were “knocked out of their senses.”

As you get into the Sermon on the Mount you discover that it is all about Jesus and having relationship and intimacy with Him. You realize you are fortunate. You are abundantly blessed beyond all compare. You must be congratulated. There is nothing more that you need. You have found your place. Jesus is your all in all. You are in the Kingdom.

This exegetical commentary on the first half of Matthew 5 examines the Beatitudes, the “mountainous truth” of being salt and light in this dark world, and how Jesus was the fulfillment of the Written Word.
