Subject/Title of Window: The Sermon on the Mount; Do Not Worry; Jesus and the Children

Brief Description of Subject: This gospel side window consists of three scenes from the Gospels separated by geometrical and floral decorations.
Top scene: The Sermon on the Mount which in its entirety can be found in  Matthew Chapters 5 through 7. "And seeing the multitudes, He [Jesus] went up to the mountain, and when he was seated His disciples came to Him. Then He opened His mouth and taught them." Matthew 5:1 - 2 NKJV Bible.
Middle Scene: Do Not Worry which is found in the Sermon on the Mount at Matthew 6:28 - 31. Jesus said, "And why do you worry about clothes? See how the flowers of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire [grass was used to heat clay ovens], will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? So do not worry." NIV Bible.
Bottom Scene: Jesus and the Children as found in Matthew 19:13 - 15. "Then little children were brought to Him that he might put His hands on them and pray, but the disciples rebuked them. But Jesus said, 'Let the children come to Me, and do not forbid them, for of such is the kingdom of heaven.' And He laid His hands on them." NKJV Bible.

The MSGC is a constantly evolving database. Not all the data that has been collected by volunteers has been sorted and entered. Not every building has been completely documented.

All images in the Index are either born-digital photographs of windows or buildings or are scans of slides, prints, or other published sources. These images have been provided by volunteers and the quality of the material varies widely.
