THE SERMON ON THE PLAIN
In the previous section, we learnt that Jesus chose His apostles. He came down the hill and stood on a level place. He gave a sermon to those present. This address is referred to as the sermon on the plain in Luke’s Gospel.
The people had come to hear Jesus’ word to receive healing and for Jesus to exercise unclean spirits from them. In the sermon, Jesus talked of the characteristics of the new community. All those who would listen to His word would be the “New Israel”.

Jesus prayed the whole night for God’s guidance and revelation before choosing the 12 disciples. He called his disciples and chose 12. They were to accompany him, teach his word and be witnesses to the Good news.
The 12 disciples were to be witness to the house of Israel and to the rest of the world. Jesus Christ called the twelve disciples ‘Apostles’ meaning one who is sent. From the Greek word Apostles meaning missionaries.
