The Perilous Sayings

by Amos Winarto Oei

Dr Amos Winarto Oei brings fresh clarity and understanding of the antitheses of Jesus from the Sermon on the Mount. Providing a thorough evaluation of key historical and contemporary interpretations of Matthew 5:21–48 from notable theologians, Oei illustrates the unity surrounding the teachings of Jesus, even among disparate denominational traditions. Dr Oei also addresses whether the ethics Jesus set out in the antitheses are for Christians only, or whether they are demands for all individuals and also the state. This book is the product of extensive theological research and sound exegesis and presents a clear argument of the universal nature and individual scope of the ethics and morality of the most famous sermon ever preached.
