Quizzing the Sermon on the Mount

Jesus looks over the crowd and declares “You are the salt of the earth…You are the light of the world…”
How did he know? What did he see in the disparate mob gathered there? Fisherfolk, tax collector, tenant farmer – the curious, the cynic and the desperado.
Was he declaring what was already innate or something that was yet to be? Or both?

Answers gladly received as I prepare Matthew 5:13-20 for Sunday’s harangue.

Not really retired but reshaped and reshaping. Now a pilgrim at large ready to engage with what each day brings.
