A fresco on the northern wall of the Sistine Chapel. It is part of the series on the life of Jesus.

In the Sermon on the Mount Jesus handed out the rules that would become the Christian guidelines. Opposite this fresco Rosselli made a fresco where Moses receives the Tables with the Law: the Jewish guidelines.

To the right another episode is shown: the healing of a leper.
