This last Sunday I was speaking on "The Golden Rule" as quoted in The Sermon on the Mount. Before I spoke on it I gave some thoughts on who is the speaker of the Sermon on the Mount. I have thought many times that the intended audience of this particular sermon are disciples (follower os the teachings and life of Jesus), but I forget who the speaker is at times.
Consider for a moment a conversation involving the computer industry. If, in the middle of a conversation, you realized that the person you were speaking with was Bill Gates or Steve Jobs, you might quiet yourself and listen up!
The speaker of the Sermon on the Mount is Jesus, the Christ! He is the same person did the talking at the creation of the universe. He spoke the animal kingdom into existence, galaxies filled the empty space He had created and by His voice mitochondria were formed and began to function.
