Sermon on the Mount

This is an introduction to the Sermon on the Mount spoken by our Lord Jesus Christ.
But this is not a detailed study of each sentence in the Sermon.
We are discussing here what the Sermon on the Mount is, what is its context, what is its importance, how it recalls to our mind the event on the Mount Sinai etc.
I am writing this study hoping that this would help you to understand better the Sermon when you read it next time.

We find the Sermon on the Mount recorded in Matthew chapter 5 to 7.
The traditional location for the Sermon is on the north western shore of the Sea of Galilee, between Capernaum and Gennesaret.
The Sermon on the Mount is the most famous sermon Jesus ever gave, perhaps the most famous sermon ever given by anyone.
