Feb. 13. Setting for Sermon on the Mount

Mt. 5:1; Lk. 6:17-19

After appointing the apostles, they all came down to a level place. There a large group of people from great distances was assembled waiting for Jesus to return and heal them. When He had healed the people, He began to deliver one of His greatest sermons.

Jesus sat down and His disciples came to Him and He began to teach them some important lessons. It is likely that the newly appointed apostles were His main audience, but the multitudes who were assembled also heard His message.
