Bible Study on Salt of the Earth

Updated on February 15, 2011

Ye are the salt of the earth! - A Short Bible Study

This site is a Bible Study of the words of Jesus In the Beatitudes on His Sermon on the Mount: "Ye are the salt of the earth" Could you say that you are "Worth your Salt?" This is a fascinating term full of meaning. Centuries ago salt was so precious that numerous people used to have part of their wages in salt. It's mentioned in the Bible (Ezra 6:9) in the framework of pay to the Persian king's servants. According to Pliny the Elder, Roman military were to be compensated in salt. It's where the word 'salary' comes from (the Latin word 'salarium')
