This chapter discusses deliberative discourse, or political policy discourse, which is one of the three rhetorical genres identified by classical rhetoricians. This is defined as a speech or writing that attempts to persuade an audience to take or not take some action and is generally associated with politics. In the Rhetoric, Aristotle stated that a deliberative orator or political orator generally offers counsel and is concerned with determining whether a course of action or a policy is useful or not. In the later parts of the chapter, the Sermon on the Mount, which emphasizes Jesus Christ's moral teachings found in the Gospel of Mathew and also the Sermon on the Plain, which refers to the teachings of Jesus in the Gospel of Luke are explored. The chapter concludes with a brief discussion on the Ministry of Jesus.
