To display a set of topics you can use topics shortcode. It can display topics in list or box view and show recent or specific topics. Almost any topic layout you can build on home page can be reproduced using this shortcode.

Check the following example:
[mkb-topics title="Featured topics" title_size="2em" columns="2col" topics="2,22"]

Featured topics
