Mount of Beatitudes


  P.1572 - §1 The so-called "Sermon on the Mount" is not the gospel of Jesus. It does contain much helpful instruction, but it was Jesus' ordination charge to the twelve apostles. It was the Master's personal commission to those who were to go on preaching the gospel and aspiring to represent him in the world of men even as he was so eloquently and perfectly representative of his Father.

P.1572 - §2 "You are the salt of the earth, salt with a saving savor. But if this salt has lost its savor, wherewith shall it be salted? It is henceforth good for nothing but to be cast out and trodden under foot of men."

 
Mount of Beatitudes Church. It is located in the north of Capernaum. The direction of this church from Capernaum is consistent with its description in the UB, if not the location.
