Sermon on the Mount

The Sermon on the Mount is the title given to Jesus' sermon found in Matthew 5-7. A similar, yet shorter version in Luke 6:20b-49 is sometimes called the Sermon on the Plain to distinguish its account from Matthew's. The title "Sermon on the Mount" goes back to Augustine's title he gave to his important commentary on Matthew 5-7,[^1] yet Matthew 5-7 was not generally given this title until around the sixteenth century.
