about

The Sermon on the Mount is central to the teaching of Jesus. In this fresh study of the sermon, Barry Pearlman revives its traditional biblical interpretation, which acknowledges all four senses of scripture: the literal, moral, allegorical, and mystical. The first chapter begins by tracing these four senses to their origin in the haggadic teaching of Jesus, then follows their development in the allegories of St. Paul up to their blossoming in the Middle Ages. After critically reviewing the rise and demise of the historical critical method, there follows a brief account of the return to the four senses within the ressourcement movement in contemporary theology.<_p29_ the="" second="" chapter="" expounds="" some="" key="" motifs="" in="" gospels="" of="" st.="" matthew="" and="" _luke2c_="" as="" they="" relate="" to="" significance="" _jesus27_27_s="" sermon.="" then="" follows="" main="" part="" _book2c_="" which="" comprises="" an="" in-depth="" study="" text="" sermon="" itself="" according="" four="" senses.="" a="" final="" links="" each="" beatitudes="" with="" seven="" gifts="" holy="" _spirit2c_="" applying="" them="" spiritual="" life="" believer.="" _author27_27_s="" meditations="" delicately="" interlace="" various="" reveal="" sublime="" message="" concealed="" this="" most="" challenging="" yet="" beautiful="" our="" _lord27_27_s="">
