Scripture Readings

Biblical Readings for April:  Numbers and St. Matthew
Emphasis:  Good Friday, Easter, Holy Week and Lenten Ends

Week of April 4th (Holy Communion & Easter Sunday)
Scripture:  Psalm 16:5-11 (esp.10); St Mark 1:24; St Matthew 28:1-10; St Luke 24:1-5; St John 20:11-18
Thought:  The glorious resurrection from the dead – lifted from a low place.

Three lessons, while nailed to the cross (hanging between life and death):

Week of April 11th (1st Lesson)
Scripture:  Psalm 22:1-5; St Matthew 27:45-49; St Mark 15:33-37
Thought:  Nailed to… forsaken when one can grant relief and rescue but will not.

Week of April 18th (2nd Lesson)
Scripture:  Psalm 22:1-5; St Matthew 27:38-42; St Mark 15:29-32; St Luke 23:35-38
Thought:  Sustained while mocked, ridiculed, and mocked; a long-term relationship

Week of April 25th (3rd Lesson)
Scripture:  Psalm 22:16-24; St John 19:23-24; St Matthew 5:44
Thought:  The ode of a dying man as they gamble for his estate – do good from the cross where you have a better view.

Prayer (Jesus’ perspective): Lord, I can see things drastically different while hanging from this cross, between fleeting life and approaching death. Have Divine mercy upon them all. Amen.
