The Sermon on the Mount is the name given to an extended teaching by Jesus recorded in Matthew 5-7. It derives its name from Matthew 5:1-2, which says: "Now when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him,and he began to teach them." The Sermon on the Mount contains many well-known passages, beginning at the very start of the sermon, with the so-called Beatitudes (deriving from the Latin word for "blessed"), in which Jesus discussed characteristics or attitudes that God would bless individuals in various ways for possessing. Many of the teachings of Jesus found in the Sermon on the Mount are recorded in various passages by the other gospels (such as in Luke 6:20-49), but not in such a lengthy or consolidated format.
