on his disciples
6:20 on his disciples. This sermon, while similar to the Sermon on the Mount, was given at a different time and place. The Sermon on the Mount was given on a mountain, and only to His disciples, not to the “multitudes” (see note on Matthew 5:1). The sermon recorded here in Luke 6:20-49 was given to the whole multitude (Luke 6:19; 7:1), although it was especially addressed to His disciples (Luke 6:20), and it was delivered down on the plain (Luke 6:17), not on the mount.
