Sermon Notes

The Lord’s Prayer (also referred to as the “Our Father” by Catholics) was given during Christ’s well-known Sermon on the Mount. Surprisingly, these words are recorded in only one of the gospels (Matthew 6:9 – 13). A similar, but not exact, version of these verses is given by the Lord at a different time (Luke 11). The Matthew 6 version of the prayer was given after he chose twelve men to be his apostles (Luke 6:12 – 16) and was offered to a large and diverse crowd of people (Luke 6:17). The Luke version of the prayer was given by the Lord in response to a disciple wanting to be taught how to talk to God (Luke 11:1).
