Maybe you would want to pre-empt any such comments by linking to one question you think answers that especially well?

comment Sermon on the mount by Jesus Christ
The story, I would agree, is best understood that way. But I would also argue that the story is not meant to be taken as a literal account... More a "based on true events" reconstruction.

comment Sermon on the mount by Jesus Christ
@curiousdannii: The text, if you consider all the gospels together, gives an excellent indication that there was no single "Sermon on the Mount." Most likely, there were countless such instances, condensed into a single narrative. Whether any given instance lasted more than a single day, I think can only be answered by speculation. It seems quite likely to me that Jesus might have participated in a multi-day event, which may have happened on a mountain, and may have covered some, many, or all of the points mentioned in the gospels as the SoM.

comment Sermon on the mount by Jesus Christ
Are you asking how long it would have taken Jesus to deliver the SoM once? Or are you asking on how many different days Jesus delivered a sermon covering the points recorded in the SoM? Neither is an answerable question. Most scholars believe Jesus, as most teachers in oral cultures, would have repeated the same themes countless times, much like a "stump speech". It was, years later, condensed into the gospels--part of which is known as the SoM. He undoubtedly gave the same speech countless times, each time on a single day, but each day not necessarily covering the same exact points.

@Nathaniel: Is there only one answer from a Reformed perspective? That's the key to whether that's a sufficient scope.

comment Is Jesus the real name of Jesus or is it some kind of translation?
@AChildofGod: 1) The definition of a duplicate question is that the answer addresses the question. 2) I would have indicated this as the duplicate, but it was also closed as a duplicate of the other.

comment What is the name of a film about three brothers saying the Jesus prayer?
@Dejan: We permit "identify this" questions, as long as they are about "Christian things," so movie identifcation questions are expressly on-topic here--if the movie is of a Christian nature.
