TWENTY FIRST SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME C Lectionary #123
What tools do we need to interpret the signs of the times? How do we read the newspaper with Christian understanding?

Isaiah 66:18–21. Later Judaism had to deal with the horror of the Exile in Babylon. Some writers saw it as God's punishment for sin. In this reading, the “third Isaiah” (Trito-Isaiah) saw the Exile as a way to proclaim God's glory in foreign lands and to draw all the nations back to Israel when the exiles returned.

Psalm of the Day: Ps (116) 117. This shortest psalm in the Psalter is a hymn inviting the nations to recognize YHWH as God.

Suggested Common Psalm
Ps 66, Let All the Earth Cry Out

Hebrews 12:5–7, 11–13. How do Christians under persecution understand their suffering? The author of this letter suggests that it is divine discipline, the kind of punishment that a loving father would mete out to a child for correction.

Luke 13:22–30. It is clear that Jesus had a challenging understanding of the Torah, one that required intense dedication. At the same time, he seems to have shared “third Isaiah’s” view that salvation is wider than Israel.
