Matthew 5:1-7:29 — Mark — Luke — John

Spoken to the disciples during Week 21 of Yeshua’s Ministry while atop a mountain near the Kenneret.

The first “Sermon on the Mount” Yeshua proclaims “the rules of the Kingdom” to the disciples who climb the mountain to hear in direct opposition to the rules of the Pharisees.


“Matthew 5:21 “You have heard that it was said by the sages and Prushim of old time, ‘Thou shall not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment.’ 22But I say to you that whoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment! Whoever shall say to his brother, ‘You empty-headed ignoramus!’{1} shall be bound for punishment by the judges. And whoever shall say to his brother, ‘You godless moron!’ shall be bound for punishment in the fires of the Hinnom.{1} 

Matthew 5:23-26

23Therefore, if you bring a gift to the altar, and then remember that your brother has something against you, 24leave your gift before the altar and go your way. First, reconcile with your brother, and then come and offer your gift. 25Agree with your accuser quickly, while you are in the way with him, lest the adversary deliver you to the judge, and the judge deliver you to the officer, and you are cast into prison. 26Truth I say to you, you shall by no means come out of there until you have paid the last penny.”


{Mt 5:22.1} rhaka – from Aramaic: empty headed simpleton

{Mt 5:22.2} moron <mwroj> a godless fool. The Scribes and Pharisees, whom Yeshua already said “will not see the kingdom of heaven” pronounced vindictive judgments and derided those who refused to submit to their rules and authority. They insulted them with derogatory slurs which insulted their spirituality and intelligence. They called everyone outside their cult “am ha aretz,” literally “people of the land,” a term of derision applied scornfully to the masses who were uneducated in the takanot (man-made laws) of the Pharisees, or refused to submit to their authority. In contrast to the slurs “rhaka,” “godless fool,” and “am ha aretz,” the Pharisees referred to their students as “talmidea chachamim” – or “wise students.”
