    Hebrews 8:6-13

    6But as it is, Christ has obtained a ministry which is as much more excellent than the old as the covenant he mediates is better, since it is enacted on better promises.7For if that first covenant had been faultless, there would have been no occasion for a second.8For he finds fault with them when he says: "The days will come, says the Lord, when I will establish a new covenant with the house of Israeland with the house of Judah;9not like the covenant that I made with their fathers on the day when I took them by the handto lead them out of the land of Egypt;for they did not continue in my covenant, and so I paid no heed to them, says the Lord.10This is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord:I will put my laws into their minds, and write them on their hearts, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.11And they shall not teach every one his fellowor every one his brother, saying, `Know the Lord, 'for all shall know me, from the least of them to the greatest.12For I will be merciful toward their iniquities, and I will remember their sins no more."13In speaking of a new covenant he treats the first as obsolete. And what is becoming obsolete and growing old is ready to vanish away.


    Psalms 85:8, 10-14

    7Show us thy steadfast love, O LORD, and grant us thy salvation. 9Surely his salvation is at hand for those who fear him, that glory may dwell in our land. 10Steadfast love and faithfulness will meet;righteousness and peace will kiss each other. 11Faithfulness will spring up from the ground, and righteousness will look down from the sky. 12Yea, the LORD will give what is good, and our land will yield its increase. 13Righteousness will go before him, and make his footsteps a way.


    Mark 3:13-19

    13And he went up on the mountain, and called to him those whom he desired;and they came to him. 14And he appointed twelve, to be with him, and to be sent out to preach 15and have authority to cast out demons: 16Simon whom he surnamed Peter;17James the son of Zeb'edee and John the brother of James, whom he surnamed Bo-aner'ges, that is, sons of thunder;18Andrew, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus, and Simon the Cananaean, 19and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him. Then he went home;

    Neh 8:2-4a, 5-6, 8-10

    Ezra the priest brought the law before the assembly,
    which consisted of men, women,
    and those children old enough to understand.
    Standing at one end of the open place that was before the Water Gate,
    he read out of the book from daybreak till midday,
    in the presence of the men, the women,
    and those children old enough to understand;
    and all the people listened attentively to the book of the law.
    Ezra the scribe stood on a wooden platform
    that had been made for the occasion.
    He opened the scroll
    so that all the people might see it
    — for he was standing higher up than any of the people —;
    and, as he opened it, all the people rose.
    Ezra blessed the LORD, the great God,
    and all the people, their hands raised high, answered,
    "Amen, amen!"
    Then they bowed down and prostrated themselves before the LORD,
    their faces to the ground.
    Ezra read plainly from the book of the law of God,
    interpreting it so that all could understand what was read.
    Then Nehemiah, that is, His Excellency, and Ezra the priest-scribe
    and the Levites who were instructing the people
    said to all the people:
    "Today is holy to the LORD your God.
    Do not be sad, and do not weep"—
    for all the people were weeping as they heard the words of the law.
    He said further: "Go, eat rich foods and drink sweet drinks,
    and allot portions to those who had nothing prepared;
    for today is holy to our LORD.
    Do not be saddened this day,
    for rejoicing in the LORD must be your strength!"


    Ps 19:8, 9, 10, 15

    R. (cf John 6:63c)
    Your words, Lord, are Spirit and life.
    The law of the LORD is perfect,
    refreshing the soul;
    The decree of the LORD is trustworthy,
    giving wisdom to the simple.
    R.Your words, Lord, are Spirit and life.
    The precepts of the LORD are right,
    rejoicing the heart;
    The command of the LORD is clear,
    enlightening the eye.
    R.Your words, Lord, are Spirit and life.
    The fear of the LORD is pure,
    enduring forever;
    The ordinances of the LORD are true,
    all of them just.
    R.Your words, Lord, are Spirit and life.
    Let the words of my mouth and the thought of my heart
    find favor before you,
    O LORD, my rock and my redeemer.
    R.Your words, Lord, are Spirit and life.


    1 Cor 12:12-14, 27

    Brothers and sisters:
    As a body is one though it has many parts,
    and all the parts of the body, though many, are one body,
    so also Christ.
    For in one Spirit we were all baptized into one body,
    whether Jews or Greeks, slaves or free persons,
    and we were all given to drink of one Spirit.
    Now the body is not a single part, but many.
    You are Christ’s body, and individually parts of it.


    Lk 1:1-4;4:14-21

    Since many have undertaken to compile a narrative of the events
    that have been fulfilled among us,
    just as those who were eyewitnesses from the beginning
    and ministers of the word have handed them down to us,
    I too have decided,
    after investigating everything accurately anew,
    to write it down in an orderly sequence for you,
    most excellent Theophilus,
    so that you may realize the certainty of the teachings
    you have received.
    Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit,
    and news of him spread throughout the whole region.
    He taught in their synagogues and was praised by all.
    He came to Nazareth, where he had grown up,
    and went according to his custom
    into the synagogue on the sabbath day.
    He stood up to read and was handed a scroll of the prophet Isaiah.
    He unrolled the scroll and found the passage where it was written:
    The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring glad tidings to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, and to proclaim a year acceptable to the Lord.
    Rolling up the scroll, he handed it back to the attendant and sat down,
    and the eyes of all in the synagogue looked intently at him.
    He said to them,
    "Today this Scripture passage is fulfilled in your hearing."
