Welcome to Biblical Hermeneutics. If you have a moment, check out some of our site distinctives. Our site is a Q&A site focused on the interpretation of the Bible. I've edited your question to try to keep it from being closed as off-topic. If the way I've framed it doesn't fit what you're asking, feel free to revert my changes.

comment Who is Matthew's intended audience for the Sermon on the Mount?
@Davïd I tried to write this question in a way to avoid that discussion. It seems to me whether or not Matthew wrote the gospel to his own local community with their particular situation in mind or to a broader church community, it's hard to imagine that he's so partisan that he only thinks Jesus' sermon places ethical demands on disciples in Antioch (or wherever). Or maybe I'm too naive?

comment Who is Matthew's intended audience for the Sermon on the Mount?
@MarkEdward I was merely hoping to avoid with the parenthesis the idea that Matthew has co-opted Jesus' sermon for a different purpose (e.g. that Jesus meant it only for the twelve and only pre-resurrection, but now Matthew intends it for his community post-resurrection). I made a slight change to try to re-focus. As per my comment above, I'm not concerned per se about the disciples in the narrative, but disciples of Jesus post-narrative to whom Matthew writes.

comment Who is Matthew's intended audience for the Sermon on the Mount?
While similar in title to this question, I believe this question concerns the audience external to the narrative, whereas the other question concerns the audience internal to it.
