Mount of Beatitudes - Israel Tours

Where Jesus preached the “Sermon on the Mount” and historians say Jesus stood at the bottom of the hill so that everyone could hear him

Make sure to include recognizable sites such as the Mount of Beatitudes on your pilgrimage to Israel. As you probably already know, the Mount of Beatitudes is where Jesus preached the infamous “Sermon on the Mount”. The land to the side of the church forms a natural amphitheater that slopes down to the side of the lake, so historians suggest that Jesus actually stood at the bottom of the hill so that everyone could hear him, however, this has little affect on how people view this area-a great stop during an Israel trip.

Matthew Chapter 5:1-13

1 Seeing the crowds, he went up on the mountain, and when he sat down his disciples came to him. 2 And he opened his mouth and taught them, saying: 3 “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 4 “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted. 5 “Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. 6 “Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied. 7 “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy. 8 “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God. 9 “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God. 10 “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 “Blessed are you when men revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. 12 Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so men persecuted the prophets who were before you. 13 “You are the salt of the earth; but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trodden under foot by men.
