The Scent of the Savior
Jesus introduced the famous images of "salt of the earth" and "city on a hill" in this early part of his Sermon on the Mount. He uses these images to teach his followers what he has called them to be for this world that is destined for destruction. If Jesus were to teach this lesson again today, rather than salt and lamplight, he might use the image of scented candles.
Caught Up in the Kingdom of God
Matthew shows disciples of Jesus what it means to catch people by the Kingdom of God.
