Sermon on the Mount

A discourse by the Lord Jesus Christ to His disciples who were about to be sent forth on missions (Matt. 5–7; Luke 6:20–49). The Lord gave the sermon soon after the calling of the Twelve.

The sermon is clarified by the Joseph Smith Translation of the Bible and by a similar sermon recorded in 3 Nephi 12–14 that show that important parts of the sermon have been lost from the account in Matthew.
