The Essence


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

The teaching of Jesus of Nazareth is unparalleled and universally acclaimed in the history of our world. Born into relative obscurity and poverty, no one has impacted the world to the same extent as Jesus. Amidst all he said and did, his close friend Matthew (a former social outcast) captured his teaching—delivered on a hillside just above the town where he lived, overlooking the Sea of Galilee. The fifth, sixth, and seventh chapters of Matthew’s Gospel, commonly referred to as the Sermon on the Mount, have been described as the essence of all that Jesus taught about God and how we relate with him. Every Christian (and every preacher!) must wrestle with the words of Jesus given on a Galilean hillside. If a person grasped nothing else of the words Jesus spoke, apart from that contained in the Sermon on the Mount, he or she catches the essence of his timeless message. This book unpacks the essence of Jesus’ teaching and its remarkable application in our current age—a resource for individual Christ-followers, preachers, and a discussion-starter for small groups.

The Sermon On The Mount


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Contrary to those who appear to think that the only "moral issues" which should concern contemporary Christians are abortion, homosexuality and stem cell research, Jesus was concerned about many issues. Although He wrote no systematic ethical system, He gave His followers principals to guide them about moral issues, which He did not mention. These include making peace, healing the sick, feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, housing the homeless and visiting the imprisoned.

A Dictionary Of Christ And The Gospels


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

The purpose of this dictionary is to give an account of everything that relates to Christ - His Person, Life, Work, and Teaching. It is in a sense complementary to the Dictionary of the Bible, in which, of course, Christ has a great place. But a dictionary of the Bible, being occupied mainly with things biographical, historical, geographical, or antiquarian, does not give attention to the things of Christ sufficient for the needs of the preacher, to whom Christ is everything. This is, first of all, a preacher's dictionary. The authors of the articles have been carefully chosen from among those scholars who are, or have been, themselves preachers. And even when the articles have the same titles as articles in the Dictionary of the Bible, they are written by new men, and from a new standpoint. It is thus a work which is quite distinct from, and altogether independent of, the Dictionary of the Bible. It is called a Dictionary of Christ and the Gospels, because it includes everything that the Gospels contain, whether directly related to Christ or not. Its range, however, is far greater than that of the Gospels. It seeks to cover all that relates to Christ throughout the Bible and in the life and literature of the world. There will be articles on the Patristic estimate of Jesus, the Medieval estimate, the Reformation and Modern estimates. There will be articles on Christ in the Jewish writings and in the Muslim literature. Much attention has been given to modern thought, whether Christian or anti-Christian. Every aspect of modern life, in so far as it touches or is touched by Christ, is described under its proper title. James Hastings (1852-1922) was a distinguished scholar and pastor. He was founder and editor of the Expository Times and is also well known for editing the five-volume Dictionary of the Bible, as well as the Encyclopaedia of Religion and Ethics, the Dictionary of Christ and the Gospels, and the Dictionary of the Apostolic Church.

The Sermon On The Mount


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

The Sermon on the Mount continues to attract persons of different backgrounds and traditions. There is general agreement that the Sermon offers a compendium of the teachings of Jesus, and that it is one of the most lofty and powerful expressions of the essence of the moral life. But when one turns to questions about the Sermon's meaning and relevance, there is no unanimity of opinion. A cluster of problems has divided interpreters from the first centuries of the Christian era to the present. Kissinger's readable yet scholarly guide to the literature of the Sermon on the Mount reflects some of the many attempts which have been made to wrestle with those problems. Part I traces in 35 sections the history of interpretation of the Sermon on the Mount from the patristic period to the twentieth century. An extensive partially-annotated bibliography on the Sermon on the Mount and the Beatitudes is presented in Part II. The bibliography was developed from the collection of the late Harold Row. The author added materials from the Library of Congress and other outstanding collections to provide the first full-scale bibliography of the Sermon on the Mount which has indeed proved to be authoritative. Since the book was first published in its cloth edition in 1975, it has been widely consulted as a resource for Sermon on the Mount research and study. A general index of topics, a biblical references index, and an appendix listing "Sermon on the Mount" in 61 languages completes the work.
