"Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh."
Sixth Sunday after Epiphany
Jesus Heals a Great Multitude
Luke 6:17 He came down with them and stood on a level place, with a great crowd of his disciples and a great multitude of people from all Judea, Jerusalem, and the coast of Tyre and Sidon.
Luke 6:20 Then he looked up at his disciples and said: "Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God."
Jesus Pronounces Woes
Luke 6:24 "But woe to you who are rich, for you have received your consolation."
NSRV & Believer's Study Bible (BSB) Notes
[Luke 6:20] The Sermon on the Plain in Luke is at some points similar to the Sermon on the Mount in Matt. 5-7. It is probable that the two sermons are based on the same occasion, Luke having presented an abbreviated account. Both begin with Beatitudes, but Luke has only four, each accompanied by a woe. Luke's sermon is about one-third as long as Matthew's. Some of the material in Luke is found elsewhere in Matthew, and much in Matthew's sermon is found elsewhere in Luke. Verses 24-26 are exclusive to Luke. The sermon is a description of the life of the new people of God (cf. Matt. 5:1, note: "Gennesaret" is another name for the Sea of Galilee).
