Deuteronomy 18:15–20. The figure of Moses was so important in Jewish history and belief that the author of Deuteronomy consoled the people with the divine promise that they would never be without a prophet like Moses.

Psalm of the Day: Ps (94) 95
The God of Israel is celebrated as the supreme Deity and the shepherd of the people. In Christian practice, this psalm is used as the “invitatory” that begins the daily Liturgy of the Hours.

1 Corinthians 7:32–35. Paul is trying to communicate the sort of wholehearted devotion that the Gospel calls for. Though unmarried himself, he uses marriage as an example of the way people can become involved with things other than the faith. This passage has often been used to defend a dedicated life of virginity.

Mark 1:21–28. Though many people thought of Jesus as a rabbi—a teacher of the Torah—he demonstrates in the synagogue at Capernaum that he is an interpreter as well as an expert in current thought about the Torah, in other words, a powerful teacher who offers “a new teaching with authority.”
