I consider it a privilege to teach God’s Word and I am grateful for the opportunities that are presented to me by the Point Pleasant church of Christ. This past Sunday, I wrapped up an 11-lesson study of the Sermon on the Mount with the middle school class. There are many rich lessons to be found in Christ’s masterpiece.
Throughout my preparation, I made use of the commentaries of several scholars in the Lord’s church. Their works are available online at the following links:
- Boles, H. Leo. (1952). A Commentary on The Gospel According to Matthew. Nashville, TN: The Gospel Advocate Company.
- Coffman, James Burton. (1984). Matthew. Abilene, TX: ACU Press.
- Fowler, Harold. (1968). The Gospel of Matthew, Volume I. Joplin, MO: College Press.
- McGarvey, J.W. (1875). The New Testament Commentary, Vol. I – Matthew and Mark. Chase & Hall.
My notes are presented here for your use as an aid in personal or class studies. Use them as you see fit.
