The following readings below are for Sunday, January 12, 2020:


Today's Epistle reading [Ephesians 4.7-13]

 
But grace was given to each of us according to the measure of Christ's gift.  Therefore it is said,

"When he ascended on high he led a host of captives,
and he gave gifts to men
."
 
(In saying, "He ascended." what does it mean but that he had also descended into the lower parts of the earth?  He who descended is he who also ascended far above all the heavens, that he might fill all things.)  And his gifts were that some should be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, some pastors and teachers, for the equipment of the saints, for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ, until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.

The Gospel reading for today [Matthew 4.12-17]:



Now when he heard that John had been arrested, he withdrew into Galilee; and leaving Nazareth he went and dwelt in Capernaum by the sea, in the territory of Zebulun and Naphtali, for that what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah might be fulfilled:

"The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali,
toward the sea, across the Jordan,
Galilee of the Gentiles---
the people who sat in darkness have seen a great light,
and for those who sat in the region and shadow of death 
light has dawned
."

From that time Jesus began to preach, saying, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand."
