the sermon on the mount
one of the most famous parts of the bible is the sermon on the mount but we can see that it is a bit of bizare story. Firstly why did jebus do it on a mountain? It seemed a bit much to make everyone walk to the top of a mountain to hear him when he could have done it somewhere not in the middle of nowhere. Next if there were millions of people how did they all hear him? It was also where he said to love your neighbour but what if your neighbour isnt very nice? Clealry this has all the hallmarks of a made up story. indeed wed expect at least a few of the people to write about it in heir diaries or their blog equivilant and yet where is the evidence such an event took place?
