Jesus is still speaking to his disciples on a mountain near the Sea of Galilee.
“You are the salt of the earth. Salt is good, but if the salt has lost its saltiness, how will you make it salty again, [or] how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything. It is of no use either for the soil or for the manure pile. It is thrown away and trampled under people’s feet. Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with one another. He who has ears to hear, let him hear.”
And he said to them, “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. No one after lighting a lamp covers it with a jar or puts it under a bed, but puts it on a stand, so that those who enter may see the light. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. For nothing is hidden that will not be made manifest, nor is anything secret that will not be known and come to light.”
