THIRD SUNDAY OF EASTER A Lectionary #46

Early Christian preaching, especially in Jewish Christian circles, often included a re-interpretation of familiar biblical texts in light of the experience of the risen Christ. How well do we know our Bible? Could we do what Jesus did on the road to Emmaus and help others understand the whole Bible in the light of Christ?

Acts 2:14, 22-28. Another sample of early Christian preaching that uses the psalms to interpret the meaning of Jesus' death and resurrection.

Psalm of the Day: Ps (15) 16
This prayer for protection includes at its heart an extended reflection of what it means to believe in the One God.

Common Psalm: Ps (65) 66
Let All the Earth Cry Out with Joy

1 Peter 1:17-21. Faith has consequences for our moral life during our "sojourn in a strange land."

Luke 24:13-35. The road to Emmaus. Could the two disciples be husband and wife? (Maybe.) Is this a summary of the early Christian Eucharist: proclamation and preaching followed by the "breaking of the bread"? (Probably.)
