Sunday's Service

Every Sunday, across the world, Christians share an agreed three year cycle of Bible Readings in Sunday worship, this is called the Common Lectionary. We offer materials including prayers bible study and worship resources for each one of these Sunday's via our Lectionary Bible Notes Section.

Jesus and the vineworkersOrdinary 27

We read in the Gospel passages in Matthew right now about how much Jesus was ruffling the feathers of the Jewish authorities. The Chief Priests and elders, saw in Jesus another threat to their power, just like John the Baptist. They now seem intent on arresting Jesus and making sure that he suffers the same fate. None of this comes as a surprise to Jesus and in the parable today he speaks of the son and heir being killed by those who had been allowed to look after the vineyard for the owner. The message is clear, the vineyard is Israel and God had entrusted this precious thing to unworthy tenants in the religious professionals. They had killed God's servants now they were intent on killing his son.

the cross is the way

 

Each morning and each evening
let the peace of the Father, be ours.
Each day and each night
let the peace of the Son be ours.
Each dawn and each dusk
let the peace of the Spirit be ours.
Let the blessing of the three in one be ours;
both now and for ever. Amen.
Carmina Gadelica
