In the famous Sermon on the Mount Yeshua said to his disciples “you are salt of the earth…” But what does that exactly mean? Look beyond the usual explanations, focus on the cultural context of his words and consider a meaning you may not have considered.

I am an educator, researcher, a faculty member and an avid believer in online education. My specialties are Sacred Texts and Cultures (Second Temple period, early Judaism and nascent Christianity). I am passionate about meaning, context, and cultural transmission of ancient texts. My preoccupations with history, ancient languages and contextual interpretation often find expression in my blog posts. Every human has a pretext, every message has a context. Context changes everything! Enjoy reading. Read articles by Pinchas
