In looking up the Bible reference for Jesus’ teaching related to hiding “a light under a bushel, I discovered some variances on how this parable is presented in Matthew, Mark and Luke.
The nuances of the three presentations suggest something very remarkable about what I believe Jesus taught in this example. What’s more, the adjacent passages in all three gospels demonstrate the difference in emphasis that each of these disciples may have attached to this teaching.
As the first of a three part study, I first examine and discuss Matthew’s Gospel and the context within which the light under a bushel metaphor is presented.
