Salt in the Bible

Join us on Sunday, January 23, at the 9:30 a.m. Christian Education Hour for this Combined Adult Forum. We will explore the meaning and symbolism behind the use of “salt” in the Bible. Zoom link available.

Did you know that salt was one of the most valuable commodities in the ancient world?  Used to preserve the harvests upon which civilization depended, wars were often fought over its control.  It was so valuable that Roman soldiers were sometimes even paid in salt, but is this what Jesus had in mind when he called us “the salt of the earth?”   Learn about its surprising connection to life, hospitality, and sacrifice and how recent scientific discoveries have revealed an even deeper truth. As we discover the true meaning of salt, we can become a “salt shaker” in the city, pouring ourselves out on behalf of others.   

Please join us for this stand-along introduction on January 23, and then again for a five-week series during Lent, to take a deeper look into the true Biblical meaning of salt.
