THIRD SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME A  Lectionary #67

We are introduced to Matthew’s “fulfillment” theme: Jesus fulfills the prophecies concerning the One who is to come. This theme is often the model for the relationship between the first reading and the Gospel in the Lectionary. We also hear the call of the core members of the Twelve.

Isaiah 8:23—9:3. The “land of Zebulun and Naphtali” (quoted directly in the Gospel) was the territory of the northernmost tribes of Israel; in Jesus’ day this area was called Galilee. Now that this area is at peace once more, the prophet is given hope that a king of David’s line will come to fulfill the hope for peace throughout the country.

Psalm of the Day:  Ps (26) 27
The psalmist places trust completely in God.

1 Corinthians 1:10-13, 17. Paul identifies the first major problem in the Corinthian community: People are fighting over “authentic” Christianity, defined by the person who evangelized them. Paul points out that all the believers belong to Christ.

Matthew 4:12-23. Jesus, who came from Galilee, made Capernaum the center of his mission. Matthew summarizes Jesus’ call for repentance and recounts the call of the first disciples, Jesus’ closest allies.
