Item Description...
Too often the Sermon on the Mount has been interpreted as though it were a book itself rather than a portion of a book. Dale Allison insists on the contrary that the full meaning of these chapters in Matthew's Gospel can be seen only in relation to the broader literary context of the Gospel as a whole, with its Jewish Christian orientation. Indeed, the Sermon and the moral imperatives it contains must be understood: 1) in relation to the example provided by Jesus' words and deeds elsewhere in the Gospel; 2) with reference to the community of believers that constitutes the intended audience of Matthew's Gospel; and 3) in terms of what the Gospel says elsewhere about the end of the age. The Sermon does not present a simple set of rules, perhaps only intended for a small and select group within the Christian community, but seeks to instill a moral vision and to inspire the moral imagination of all who would follow Jesus.

A Helpful, Concise Commentary on Matthew 5-7  Oct 19, 2008
Dale Allison's The Sermon on the Mount: Inspiring the Moral Imagination (Herder & Herder, 1999) is a brief commentary on Matthew 5-7.

Allison places the Sermon within its historical and literary context and chooses to interpret the Sermon within the framework of church history. The result is a commentary that succeeds at several levels.

First, the book gives the historical data necessary in order to correctly interpret the Sermon. Allison may not delve as deeply into the historical specifics as scholars like N.T. Wright, but he goes deep enough to give a solid interpretation of several difficult-to-understand passages.

Secondly, Allison seeks to understand the Sermon within its literary context. He shows how the Sermon is echoed in other parts of Matthew's Gospel. He breaks down the structure of the Sermon, and the structure of certain passages of the Sermon - an illuminating step that helps one see the rhetorical devices of Jesus' well-known words.

Third, Allison gives brief descriptions of how the Sermon has been interpreted throughout church history. Once he arrives at a particular passage, he offers several interpretive options that have been suggested by other scholars or church fathers. He then weighs the interpretations and decides which one is most likely correct.

Inspiring the Moral Imagination is a helpful, concise commentary on Jesus' Sermon on the Mount. If you're planning on preaching through the Sermon, you will want to consult this book.
