Exodus 20:1-17. The heart of the covenant at Sinai is proclaimed by God in the “ten words,” also known as the “ten commandments.” These “words” are linked to God’s saving deeds at the Exodus and in creation.

Psalm of the Day: Ps (18) 19
The verses sung today come from the second part of this hymn. The first part is a hymn in praise of creation; the second half is a “wisdom” hymn in praise of the Torah.

1 Corinthians 1:22-25. The Church’s proclamation of “Christ crucified” doesn’t meet normal expectations. It calls for real faith and changed behavior because “the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom.” Think about the phrases “the foolishness of God” and the “weakness of God.” What a claim to make!

John 2:13-15. In words and deeds, at the heart of the covenant community—the Temple—Jesus proclaims a deed to be done by God: resurrection.
