Images for the Fifth Sunday After Epiphany, Lectionary 5A

It is more abstract this week, if you want images for the Sermon on the Mount in General look back at the Fourth Sunday after Epiphany. This week is Matthew 5: 13-20: Jesus telling the disciples they are the salt of the earth, light on a lampstand, a city on a hill and unless their righteousness exceeds that of the Pharisees they will not enter the kingdom of heaven.

More of an abstract image, but I found it helpful for my own meditation

A reminder that in the ancient world (pre-refrigerators) salt was mainly a preservative rather than a seasoning
