Are you living in a way that makes a difference in the world? In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus taught us how to enter into a life of holiness so that we could receive the full love of God and give it to others. All of His teachings about holy living are summed up in Matthew chapters 5, 6, and 7. Study this invaluable “seminar” of Jesus (the Sermon on the Mount) to transform your life.

Sermon on the Mount

Two options to use the Holy Living Bible Study:

  1. Webpage: Read it online. Here, you may also download the MP3 recordings of it. Published in 1997.
  2. e-Book (PDF format) — a revised (better!) version is available at from the author, Terry Modica, revised in 2008. Choose this option especially if you want copies for use in a Bible Study group or Small Christian Community faith-sharing group. It’s printer-ready with margins that have room for hole-punching to store in 3-ring binders. A 17-week Bible Study program.


As the scene opens, we see Jesus preparing to teach on a mountainside. In Bible symbolism, when an event takes place on a mountain, it means that this is an important contact with God.

First, Jesus notices the crowd. We can imagine that He feels a great concern for each person. He understands their needs, and He wants to help them. The best teaching He can give them is one that will guide them into a more love-filled life, in which they are closer to God than ever before. Picture yourself in the crowd. He is speaking to you. He is addressing the needs you have today.

Dear Lord, Thank You for the Loving Instruction on Holy Living in Your Word. May we be truly inspired by the teachings in Mathew Chapters 5,6 and 7 to embark on a life of holiness so that we can receive the full Love of God and share it with others. Amen.
