Matthew 5:1

This website has been moved to:

Matthew 5:1-7:29: And seeing the multitudes, He went up on a mountain, and when He was seated His disciples came to Him. Then He opened His mouth and taught them, saying: “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. […] And so it was, when Jesus had ended these sayings, that the people were astonished at His teaching, for He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

Luke 6:17-7:1: And He came down with them and stood on a level place with a crowd of His disciples and a great multitude of people from all Judea and Jerusalem, and from the seacoast of Tyre and Sidon, who came to hear Him and be healed of their diseases, as well as those who were tormented with unclean spirits. And they were healed. And the whole multitude sought to touch Him, for power went out from Him and healed them all. Then He lifted up His eyes toward His disciples, and said: “Blessed are you poor, for yours is the kingdom of God. […] Now when He concluded all His sayings in the hearing of the people, He entered Capernaum.

Matthew says that Jesus' greatest sermon was preached on a mountain, but Luke says that Jesus' greatest sermon was preached on a plain.

Luke only says that Jesus preached it 'on a level place', which is not necessarily on a plain. Even mountains can have areas of relative flatness.
