SUMMARY

The reading from Luke is the story of Mary and Martha, as Mary sits at the feet of the teachers and Martha tries to provide hospitality. Both are important aspects of discipleship (remember the Good Samaritan from last week?), so don't try to pit Mary and Martha against each other. Jesus condemns neither, but exalts Mary for infiltrating a man's world. The letter to the Colossians contains a word of peace and grace to an anxious people. It is not about condemning the Colossians for their apostasy, but encouraging them in their anxiety.

SUMMARY

In this episode Casey Wait shares a reflection Elijah's ride into heaven. In the Gospel reading, Jesus "determines to go to Jerusalem," the disciples ask to call down some "Shock and Awe" on cities who do not welcome them. How do we respond when the Good News is rejected? How should we respond? What is the balance between faithful prophetic witness and angry retaliation? Then Jesus gives warnings to a few who want to follow.

The Galatians reading examines the relationship between freedom in Christ and obligations toward others. Just last week we were declaring “There is no slave or free.” And now we are declaring that we are in fact “slaves to one another.” Which is it Paul? We are all free to love, but love is bondage.

PSALMIST IN THE FIELD: Richard Bruxvoort Colligan

SUMMARY: We're back into ordinary time so we get to go back to the Gospel of Luke, and we start with a nice simple story about Jesus exorcising demons, sending them into pigs, who then run off a cliff. There is a reason this episode went over an hour. After the Luke text we move into one of the most beloved passages of Paul's body of work, as he declares that

"There is neither Jew nor Greek; there is neither slave nor free; nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus."

Check out the show notes for some work on 1 Kings, and Richard BC has a commentary on Psalm 42.

SUMMARY

It's Trinity Sunday. In the John text, Jesus promises the coming of the Spirit of Truth. We discuss the concept of the Paraklete, is it advocate or companion? Both descriptions are important, but incomplete. Romans 5 is an important passage in the history of the Church, and gives us a chance to examine the idea of boasting in suffering, and the source of our hope. Mason Parks shares a great word about wisdom, and Richard BC covers Psalm 8.

SUMMARY

It's Pentecost, so you know we're going to talk about the Spirit blowing in. We focus a lot of this discussion on the Joel text, and discuss what the "end of days" might mean. In the Romans passage, Paul writes of the Spirit of Adoption, which can be a powerful metaphor for Christian community. Plus Melissa Myers has a great word on John 14 and Richard shares about Psalm 104.

SUMMARY

In this episode, the Gospel of John lingers a little longer in Maundy Thursday. On the eve of Pentecost, we share part of Jesus' prayer from the eve of his crucifixion. His prayer for unity is important to remember, but at what cost? What kind of unity is Jesus praying for?

The text from Acts is long, but an interesting story of liberation and captivity. Paul and Silas are arrested for upsetting the cultural and economic status quo. But what about the status quo for the slave girl? How is the jailer liberated?

Plus, Nicole Cox has a sorrowful comment on the end of Revelation and Richard BC brings is creativity to Psalm 97/

SUMMARY

We revisit Maundy Thursday with the Love Commandment as found in John 13:31-35. This is the simple foundation of following Christ, but living it out can be so difficult. In Acts, Peter retells his vision of a new understanding of what it means to be clean and holy. "Could I stand in God's way?" he asks. Plus, Bryan Odeen shares about the New heaven as found in Revelation 21:1-6, and Richard has a segment on Psalm 148.

SUMMARY

Jesus has conflict with the "Jewish Opposition," and challenges us to define who we think he is. What is the relationship between teaching and belief? Signs and works? Why are some Jesus' sheep and others seem to resist? In Acts Peter raises Tabitha, and we wonder what it means to "proclaim someone is alive." There are some powerful connections to Mothers' Day in this text as well. Plus Jeff Nelson has a word on Revelation and Richard BC shares about one of the most famous poems ever written.

SUMMARY:

John 21:1-19 is the 'appendix' of the gospel, as seven disciples go fishing. Once again, they do not recognize him, but when the net overflows the realize it is the Risen Christ in their presence. What's up with 153 fish? Why did Jesus ask Peter that question three times? Many people call the Acts text "Paul's conversion," but is that really the case? First of all, Paul never believes that he stops being Jewish. Secondly, his transformation hasn't happened yet. Plus we have a great piece by Cheryl Kerr on Revelation 5 and Richard BC shares a nugget on Psalm 30.

SUMMARY: It's the second Sunday of Easter, so of course we have some Doubting Thomas. But of course we must ask, "who exactly is he doubting?" Thomas doubted the other 10, not Jesus. Our Acts discussion centers on Peter's speech about Christ Resurrected! It's not about passing blame, but declaring what is happening now. Plus Max and Susan bring their creative best to an introduction to our introduction to Revelation.

Summary:

In this episode Eric and Robb pretty much go it alone. We talk about Palm Sunday, especially some of the literary context around the story of Jesus' entry. We ask a few quesions, like "Where are the palms?" "Where are the hosanas?" And we ponder if we should extend the reading one more verse. Then we talk a little about Maundy Thursday and Good Friday.

SUMMARY

In this episode we discuss Mary "wasting" her oil on Jesus' feet. There is a line at the end of this passage that some feel gives us a reason to not be in ministry with the poor. To be blunt, these people are wrong. We also discuss Paul's passage about sanctifying grace. Plus Nelson Pierce has a prophetic word on Isaiah, and Richard brings us another beautiful commentary on the Psalms.

In this episode Casey Fitzgerald shares a compelling and convicting commentary on Joshua 5. Then we move into one of the most beloved stories of the Bible, the prodigal son (or is it the prodigal father?). 2 Corinthians is an important piece of our understanding of the mission of the church. We are reminded that we are in the ministry of reconciliation, and it is easy to see how others should reconcile. It is much harder when we are the ones needing reconciliation. Finally, Richard shares part four of this Lenten Psalm series on trust.

In this episode we have an inspiring and uplifting piece from Tremaine Combs on Isaiah 55:1-9. We then move into the Gospel of Luke, where Jesus seems to have a very harsh parable about sinfulness and the fig tree, but also counters the notion that all suffering is because God is punishing sin. The letter to the Corinthians takes this discussion of sin and suffering a little further. Richard Bruxvoort Colligan continues his Lenten Psalms series on Trust.

Then we move to a tough discussion on privilege and dual citizenship inspired by Paul's letter to the Philippians. Richard continues his Lenten series on trust.

SUMMARY

On this, the first Sunday of Lent, we discuss the story of Jesus in the wilderness with the tempter. A closer look at the nature of what tempted Jesus gives us insight into our Lenten journey. Paul's letter to the Romans includes encouragement to keep preaching the good news, and begs us to examine what we mean by the word "salvation."

The Gospel reading is Luke 5:1-11. Jesus guides Peter to the miraculous catch, and tells him, John, and James that they will become "fishers of people."

A Call to Worship 
One: O Holy One, how amazing are your works
Many: In wisdom, you made them all.
One: The earth is full of your creatures
Many: The sea, great and wide, living things both small and great.
One: These all look to you to give them their food in due season;
Many: When you send forth your spirit, they have life;
One: Let us sing to the Holy One as long as we have breath;
Many: Sing praise to our God while we have being.
One: O Holy One, how amazing are your works
Many: In wisdom, you made them all.

Episode 42

Welcome to the Pulpit Fiction Podcast, where two local pastors discuss the lectionary reading for the week.  We are well aware that “What” is not a country, and we’ll try not to say it again. This is episode 42 for Sunday December 22, Advent 4A. We will be discussing: 

Matthew 1:18-25- An Angel visits Joseph Isaiah 7:10-16 - Immanuel


Check-in

We feel like poop Time Person of the Year - Pope Francis Advent stuff! Advent resources Advent run to Bethlehem - On to Egypt! 333 miles!


Primary Scripture - Matthew 1:18-25- An Angel visits Joseph

Birth narrative in Matthew is barely a narrative.  It never really happens. There’s no manger or shepherds or angels or trip to Bethlehem.  1:1-17 is genealogy 18-24 is about Joseph Jesus is born in a period in the middle of verse 25 “But he didn't have sexual relations with her until she gave birth to a son.  Joseph called him Jesus.” Traditional “Nativity Scenes” or the “Creche” do not really depict a Biblical scene if they include the Magi.   Magi don’t come until “After he was born.”  Joseph disregards the Deuteronomic Law, and yet he is considered a “Righteous man” because of this kindness. He is stuck between following the Law, and following his heart. His choice is to follow his heart. Standing in tension that Jesus grows up to teach about time and again: “You have heard it said..., but I say to you…” Joseph does not investigate whether Mary conceived in a field or not.  And he chooses not to search for the man either. Deuteronomy 22:22-27:

“If a man is found having sex with a woman who is married to someone else, both of them must die—the man who was having sex with the woman and the woman herself.  Remove such evil from Israel!  If a young woman who is a virgin is engaged to one man and another man meets up with her in a town and has sex with her, you must bring both of them to the city gates there and stone them until they die—the young woman because she didn’t call for help in the city, and the man because of the fact that he humiliated his neighbor’s wife. Remove such evil from your community!

But if the man met up with the engaged woman in a field, grabbing her and having sex with her there, only the man will die. Don’t do anything whatsoever to the young woman. She hasn’t committed any capital crime—rather, this situation is exactly like the one where someone attacks his neighbor and kills him. Since the man met up with her in a field, the engaged woman may well have called out for help, but there was no one to rescue her.

If a man meets up with a young woman who is a virgin and not engaged, grabs her and has sex with her, and they are caught in the act, the man who had sex with her must give fifty silver shekels to the young woman’s father.  She will also become his wife because he has humiliated her.  He is never allowed to divorce her.”

Also note that the adultery law only applies if the woman is married.  It says nothing about a married man having sex with a woman that is unmarried.   Marriage was a property exchange, and a way to determine the handing down of goods from Father to Son.   Sex with a married woman throws into question the validity of the husband’s property line. Also, marriage is required if a man rapes an unengaged woman, and the reparations are paid to the father. Ultimately, this is about God’s action in the child that is coming.   This birth is “of God.”   The child will fall into the line of David.   Neither Mary nor Joseph have any words in this narrative.  The only words are from the angel.  The only “action” is obedience. Two names of the child tells us about the nature of God: Jesus, meaning “God saves” Matthew makes it clear that Joseph named Jesus.  This is the ultimate act of him claiming the boy as his own, thus adopting him into the line of David. (Eugene Boring, The New Interpreters Bible v. viii Matthew, p. 136) “Many Christians are uncomfortable with the expression ‘Jesus son of Joseph,’ because it sounds to them like a denial of the virgin birth.  For Matthew, it was essential that Jesus be recognized as truly the son of Joseph, because only so was he an authentic descendant of David” (Douglas Hare, Interpretation: Matthew p. 11) “God saves” through the birth of a child. Emmanuel, meaning “God is with us” The meaning of the “virgin birth” is not to make great theological interpretations about things like original sin, or biological theories about DNA.  It is about simply “God is with us.” The great mystery of Immanuel is that God is with us, and that is enough.

Secondary scripture - Isaiah 7:10-16 - Immanuel

Virgin vs. young woman- does it matter? most likely the young woman was already pregnant “The child will be born to a "young woman" (Heb. 'almah) who is already pregnant and will give birth in the near future, as suggested by the Hebrew construction harah weyoledet ("is with child and shall give birth," v. 14).” - J. Blake Couey - Feasting on the Word: Preaching the Revised Common Lectionary - Feasting on the Word – Year A, Volume 1: Advent through Transfiguration. Is this miracle more important than bringing peace to the earth, sight to the blind, good news to the poor, letting the oppressed go free, etc.? Matthew, Luke and other early Christians ascribe the name “Immanuel” to Jesus, this does not mean Isaiah was thinking of Jesus what he says this. Early Christians gave Jesus this name because he was a symbol of the hope embodied in this prophecy, just as “Son of Man” was a symbol of the faithfulness seen in King David (also known as the “Son of Man”) In opposition to the Greek and Roman Gods coming down to rape or have sex with women and cause general pain, brokenness and discord the divine coming to Earth is for healing, hope, and peace - not lust, oppression, coercion and war. For more on this see Born Divine Message of reassurance at the brink of doom Assyrians and Ephraimites are coming in to make Judah a puppet state or destroy them All is hopeless Or is it? Ahaz must ask for a sign - but won’t afraid he won’t receive an answer unwilling to trust in God Ahaz was unfaithful - worshiped pagan God, set up a pagan altar in the temple YET- God still will give anything to make the King trust in him Parallel images of a growing child and a growing world- the Eschatological growth of the world= the biological and psychological growth of a child Questions that Preach: What is the true miracle of Christmas? That a virgin conceived and bore a son OR that a child was born and showed us the saving WAY of non-violence, love and grace?  Are we willing to ask God for a sign in the midst of despair? Are we still willing to turn to God over economic, political, or militaristic solutions? What are the signs God is giving us today at this moments that “God is with us”?

Primary Scripture - Matthew 11:2-11 - Are you the One?

Confusion between Jesus and John the Baptist Matthew 16:13-20 No Newspapers or media Proclamation of repentance and new life to all people Sadducees, Pharisees, Zealots, Essenes, poor carpenters. Who is the One we are to follow? Powerful - nope Strong - nope big words- no isolating - no actions that speak for themselves- yes compassionate - yes healing - yes reconciling - yes liberating - yes Jesus proclaims himself as the one to be waited for John is not needed to proclaim anymore- just to follow the One Clear allusion to Isaiah 61 (the passage also quoted in Luke 4) The blind see, the deaf hear, the poor have good news...but children are still being massacred in their schools- we aren’t there yet John the Baptist might be happy for the lepers, lame, deaf and blind, but he is still in prison- where is his good news? “Pastors, think about these people as Advent comes. You may not be able to bring them tidings of joy, but find ways to bring them tidings of comfort. It is great for the youth group to carol the lonely and then head back to church for hot cider and donuts. How about asking members of the youth group, one by one, to adopt a shut-in, or a person in hospital, or someone in a nursing home? How about inviting the youth to sit and talk for awhile—and even better, to sit and listen for awhile?” - David Bartlett - Feasting on the Word: Preaching the Revised Common Lectionary - Feasting on the Word – Year A, Volume 1: Advent through Transfiguration. What comfort it may be to remind people that even John the Baptist-the greatest of all those who were born of women- doubted, questioned, worried. Dietrich Bonhoeffer in prison asking “Who am I?” Jesus’ answer is to look around us - what he has done What evidence is there that Jesus is real? What have you seen or experienced to show Jesus is real? What would I be without Christ? thank to Mark Yurs for the above thoughts from Feasting on the Word: Preaching the Revised Common Lectionary - Feasting on the Word – Year A, Volume 1: Advent through Transfiguration. Even the greatest on Earth are less than the Least of Heaven Powerful message to celebrity preachers

Secondary scripture - Isaiah 35:1-10 - The Highway in the Wilderness

“Bridge between First and Second Isaiah” (Frank Yamada in Working Preacher). Possibly same author as Second Isaiah, but not easy to figure out.  Christopher Seitz’s commentary in Interpretation: Isaiah deals almost exclusively with these issues. Comes after a string of dire warnings of the nations falling (like Edom in ch 34. Edom lies southeast of Judah and the Dead Sea.) Points to the vision in 40:3 “Make level a highway in the wilderness for our God…” Two Parts  vv 1-7: “Coming of the God” includes chiasm. Creation - Humanity - God - Humanity - Creation a (vv 1-2) Transforming the desert and wilderness b (v 3) Transforming weak bodies c (v 4) God comes. b’ (vv 5-6a) Transforming weak bodies c’ (vv 6b-7) Transforming the desert and wilderness (Brueggemann detailed this chiasm, but most interpreters see it as a focal point of this passage.  Texts for Preaching, Year A) At the center of the chiasm is “God who saves” “With a vengeance and divine retribution” Allow it to be God’s vengeance and Divine retribution, not ours.  In other words, we don’t know what that looks like.  In our limited, sinful mind, we almost automatically go to violence, but it is not left up to us to decide what this means.  What we do know is that the weak and vulnerable are saved. “this text helps us understand what it means to "be saved" in the Bible-not at all something that pertains only to individual souls, but rather a transformation of humanity and creation that enables all to sing together in present and eternal joy.” (Fred Gaiser in Working Preacher) vv 8-10 “Return of the People” There is no salvation apart from the community Individual salvation is not a concept that Isaiah understands. Path is safe Even for fools No predators “The Holy Way” Early Christians called followers of the Way. Will we walk the Holy Way? Will we notice the great things that are happening in our midst? Can we see? Can we hear? Can we leap? Can we sing?

Primary Scripture - Matthew 3:1-12 - John the Baptizer=

Not all Gospels have Jesus being born.  All four have John the Baptist.  All four  John the Baptist presents two problems: 1. Why was Jesus baptized if he was sinless? 2. Since John baptized Jesus, does that mean John is the leader? Differences in gospel accounts point to passage of time and emphasis of the writer. Mark’s version is very clear. John baptized Jesus. John says “One stronger than I am is coming after me.  I’m not even worthy to bend over and loosen the strap of his sandals…” (Mark 1:7, CEB) In Luke, the words of John are nearly identical “One stronger than me is coming…”   It is never said clearly that John baptizes Jesus.  It just says, “When everyone was being baptized, Jesus also was baptized” (Luke 3:21, CEB) Other parts are nearly identical to that in Matthew, but he says them to “the crowds.”  The people ask, “What shall we do?” and he replies with similar lesson from Sermon on the Mount “whoever has two shirts must share with the one who has none, and whoever has food must do the same.” Among the crowd are tax collectors and soldiers, both are given special instructions about not cheating anyone. In Matthew, John protests directly to Jesus. “I need to be baptized by you, yet you come to me?” Jesus’ response is “This is necessary to fulfill all righteousness.”   This answers the first question which the other gospels ignore.  Why was Jesus baptized? Sort of mysterious statement, but it is consistent with the rest of Matthew that is interested in “fulfilling the Law and the Prophets.” John does not mention sin directly in regards to baptism.  He is baptizing “Those who have changed your hearts and lives.”  More interested in true repentance, or aligning oneself and one’s actions to God’s will. Christian baptism is not only about washing sin.  It is about submitting to death, and rising again.  Jesus aligns himself with sinners, so that they too may experience death and resurrection. Argument for infant baptism - it is not about sin.  It is about aligning yourself to God for all eternity.  Why not do this as an infant? John is preaching to the Sadducees and Pharisees.  This sets up ongoing struggle - not between Jesus and the people, but between Jesus and religious hierarchy. In the fourth gospel, John points at two different times to Jesus as “The Lamb of God,” but is never said that John baptized Jesus. The differences may reveal the way the early church struggled with these issues.  In era before mass communication, it is easy to imagine how Jesus and John could have been confused.  The Gospel writers wanted to make sure the distinctions were made.  As time went on, the distinctions became sharper, as reflected in the four Gospel accounts. The Person of John Not much known from the Gospel of Matthew.  Nothing about familial relationship between Jesus and John. Parallels to Elijah are intentional. Wilderness = Preparation, reflection, and an element of danger.  Separated from society Classical Art of John the Baptist Would Jesus Shop on Black Friday? by David Lose The Message of John Repentance and Judgment This strange man in the wilderness puts an end to our romanticized, emotional look to the coming of an infant. “We must not speak of God’s love coming down at Christmas without remembering that the divine love is fierce in its judgment upon those who resist love’s demand” (Douglas Hare, Interpretation: Matthew). John warns against “resting on your laurels.”  It is not enough to just claim Abraham as your Father.  A changed heart has to follow. “The Christian equivalent of ‘We have Abraham as our father.’ Is ‘We have Christ as our savior.’  While trust in Christ’s salvation is a first requirement, it is not the last” (Douglas Hare, Interpretation: Matthew). Radical message that being a descendant of Abraham was not enough.  One had to have faith and action like Abraham as well. “Bearing fruit” is the key to John’s message.  The only way to know if there has been repentance, is with fruit. The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand  “Heaven” used instead of “God,” probably because of Jewish reluctance to use the word “God.” While there are elements of Matthew that tend to “spiritualize” the good news, this is more about respect to culture than a shift in premise.  The Kingdom of Heaven is not about where you go after death.  It reflects the power and ‘Kingship’ of God in the here and now. Eschatological message of John is unavoidable.  Symbolism of wilderness, clothes, diet, and chopping the tree, all signify that John is operating outside of the current era.  He is speaking to an end, and a new beginning. “John sees the judgment as already on the horizon and the basis for his urgent call for repentance.  An appeal to belong to the elect group… will not save one in the fiery judgment” (Eugene Boring, New Interpreter's Bible: Matthew). 

Secondary scripture - Isaiah 11:1-10 - Root of Jesse

Lion and Lamb- misquoted, actually is wolf and lamb A word on interpreting OT prophecy as predicting Jesus Upon encountering Jesus, Christians were reminded of the prophets words this does NOT mean that the prophets were “predicting” Jesus The Prophets were predicting the Kingdom of God - Isaiah is talking about Hezekiah, not Jesus - this message can remind us of Jesus, but doesn’t change that it was about Hezekiah Christian interpret Jesus to be the catalyst for the in-breaking of God’s Kingdom Does not supersede the prophets or the Old Testament Begins with a stump The useless remainder of something good The Giving Tree  “This is how hope gets its start—it emerges as a tiny tendril in an unexpected place. Listeners might be asked to examine where the stumps are in their own lives;  where do they feel cut off?  Can they imagine or believe that even now God might be nurturing the growth of something new and good from their old, dead dreams?  They might consider what areas of their lives most need the promise of new life, and how they might become open to such newness.  Isaiah's promise is not just a future one; even now there are tiny signs of hope and life in places that look dead and discarded.” - Stacy Simpson Duke, Feasting on the Word: Preaching the Revised Common Lectionary - Feasting on the Word – Year A, Volume 1: Advent through Transfiguration. Message of hope Hezekiah will take something crappy and make something great Obama and the Peace Prize Holistic view of K of G Includes all of creation: animals, the seas, the mountains Creation will not be destroyed but transformed What are the scary predators of today? Human and institutional predators Not about the Oppressed being vanquished but is an image of reconciliation Paul Simpson Duke, notes the transformation of  Edward Hicks- Peaceable Kingdom- not the Native Americans and Quakers

Primary Scripture - Matthew 24:36-44 - Be ready!

See Mark 13:28-37 and Luke 12:32-48 Parousia (coming) Rapture text Read The Rapture Exposed by Barbara Rossing Left Below Looking toward a new creation - the Kingdom of God Christians live “between the times” of Creation and Re-creation Second Exodus- people saved from sin, oppression and death God is incarnate in history- not simply waiting to destroy the work Noah following parables - condemn those who did not care for creation Stopped working (Mt 24:45-51) Let the oil run out (Mt 25:1-13) Wasted the talents (Mt 25:14-31) Did not care for the least of these (Mt 25:32-46) Literally? Why not? (Mark Yurs, Feasting on the Word: Preaching the Revised Common Lectionary - Feasting on the Word – Year A, Volume 1: Advent through Transfiguration.) You do not know when the end will come Be faithful until it comes keep milling keep tending the fields Life vs Death Those who are faithful will live (like in Noah’s time) Those who are not faithful will die (like in Noah’s time) What does it mean to be faithful? Timeline: http://www.countdown.org/ “Be born again” - Tim LaHaye, Hal Lindsey You cannot predict Not individual - communal Individual - own personal Jesus, standing before the pearly gates to be judged not individual - communal Immediate - “The point is not to speculate about a day of judgment sometime in the future, whether at the end of all humanity or at the death of each individual, but rather to confront us with God's radical claims on us here and now. Each day is a day of judgment, so I should always be asking myself, Am I living in the way of Christ? Am I trusting in him alone? Have I allowed myself to be distracted by selfish cares?” - Jim Burgess, Feasting on the Word: Preaching the Revised Common Lectionary - Feasting on the Word – Year A, Volume 1: Advent through Transfiguration. not about the future- about today!

Secondary scripture - Isaiah 2:1-5 - The Lord’s Mountain

Exegetical Notes Ch 2 is one considered an add-on by a later redactor.  It contains the second of three introductions to the work. “Chapters 2-4 are a collection of sayings from the prophet’s first period, but were probably put in this position by a later redactor.”Alberto Soggin Introduction to the Old Testament This passage has close parallel to Micah 4:1-4.  Not known which was first.  Micah’s promise of salvation is to Israel.  Isaiah’s is more universal in nature. Pre-exilic Jerusalem - In a precarious political situation, wedged between the world powers of Assyria and Egypt. Blame for Jerusalem’s position is placed on the people, who are sinful Failure of the people in Isaiah “For Isaiah, too, human sin consists in a refusal to recognize divine sovereignty in the whole of life.  Dishonesty, corruption, immorality, the thirst for riches and luxury, irresponsibility or downright oppression in the social sphere, syncretistic worship are all aspects of a basic attitude of human rebellion against the divine will.” Alberto Soggin Introduction to the Old Testament, p. 312. Acts as introduction to Isaiah’s theme of promise in the midst of despair. Immediately precedes oracle of great devastation and despair. Isaiah is the most quoted book of Old Testament in the New Testament.  Connection between promise as found in Isaiah and Kingdom of God in the gospels is easy to see. Reinhold Niebuhr makes the connection: “The prophet Isaiah dreamed of the day when the lion and lamb would lie down together, when , in other words, the law of nature which prompts the strong to devour the weak would be abrogated… Sometimes the contrast between the real and the ideal is drawn so sharply that the religious man despairs of the achievement of the ideal in mundane history.  He transfers his hope to another world… It is the peculiar genius of Jewish religious thought, that it conceived the millenium in this-worldly terms.  The gospel conception of the kingdom of God represents a highly spiritualised version of this Jewish millennial hope… Wherever religion concerns itself with the problems of society, it always gives birth to some kind of millennial hope, from the perspective of which present social realities are convicted of inadequacy, and courage is maintained to continue in the effort to redeem society of injustice.”  Reinhold Niebuhr, Moral Man and Immoral Society, p. 61. Walter Brueggeman makes the connection in Texts for Preaching: A lectionary commentary based on the NRSV - Year A The vision of Isaiah is “an act of imagination that looks beyond present dismay through the eyes of God, to see what will be that is not yet.  That is the function of promise (and therefore of Advent) in the life of faith.  Under promise, in Advent, faith sees what will be that is not yet.”  “Sharp contrast between what is and what will be.” Centrality of Torah  Justice and peace come from “The Instruction… from Zion; the Lord’s word from Jerusalem.” When the nations learn the Torah, then war is no longer needed as the arbiter.  Instead, God’s will can be the judge. The hope for peace lies in the Torah

Primary Scripture - Luke 23:33-43 - Death of Jesus

“father forgive them”- v. 34 not included in earliest manuscripts echo of Stephens prayer in Acts 7:60 Characteristic of Jesus who often to prayed to God as “Father” and the theme of forgiveness is definitely consistent. Escalating violence leaders make fun of/scoff soldiers ridicule/mock criminal blasphemes/derides questions Jesus as the Messiah is concerned only for his physical life he doesn't understand grace grace is not a ticket away from judgement, but through doesn’t want to pay for his crimes Kingdom of the world “save yourself” Beaten, mocked, humiliated anger vengeance outrage Kingdom of God “give yourself” forgiveness forbearance patience empathy What is the Kingdom of God like? Bless those who persecute you and curse you (6:28) a wasteful son returning to a father’s loving arms a shepherd searching for one lost sheep a weed grown in a garden to provide shelter for the birds a rich man’s feast opened to the poor and the lame “We would rather have had Jesus say that God loves the people we like and the people we say we are like, and that God does not love the people we do not like and the people we say are not like us. We would prefer if God did not love the crackheads and addicts, the adulterers, the thieves, the prostitutes, the rebellious teenagers, and the disgruntled employees. We would prefer it if paradise were exclusively for the nice people, the clean people, the polite people, the well-behaved people, the right people.” - Nancy Lynn Westfield, Feasting on the Word: Preaching the Revised Common Lectionary - Feasting on the Word – Year C, Volume 4: Season After Pentecost 2 (Propers 17-Reign of Christ).

Secondary scripture - Luke 1:68-79 - Zechariah's Canticle/Benedictus

Zechariah’s Canticle Year C Advent 2 - about bringing a new era about honors the birth of John the Baptist Mainly about Jesus whom John will “prophesy” v. 77 Zechariah means “God Remembered” God remembers the covenant with creation Jesus mighty savior (69) save from enemies (71) give light to those who sit in darkness (v 79) Guide people to peace (v. 79) Different Theme from Mary’s Song (Which was Advent 4C) Mary - Good news to the poor Zechariah - Freedom for Israel 68 - delivered God’s people 71 - brought salvation from enemies 72 - promise of ancestors and remembered his holy covenant 74 - rescued from the power of our enemies 79 - guide us on the path of peace  In contrast to the Roman peace, which is no peace at all Zechariah sees a mission for his son Rejoices over the coming of his son.  He sees great promise in the child, and praises God.   “Zechariah praised God when his son was born.  He praised God for the promises that God made.  He praised God for the promises that God kept. He praised God for the promise that was in his son.  For he knew that his son was created for a purpose.”  (Robb McCoy in “Declare that the Dawn is Coming” “But I’m here to tell you that God rejoices no less for you than did Zechariah  for his son.  Zechariah so loved his son that he could glimpse him through God’s eternal eyes.  God so loves you that he has laid out a path for you to follow.  God has given you something that makes you uniquely you.  There is something in you that transcends employment, labels, gender, race, or status.  God has created you with a purpose, and is calling you to that purpose today.  You were created to do no less than John once did – to prepare the way of the Lord, and “to show the people the way to salvation through the forgiveness of sins.” (Robb McCoy in “Declare that the Dawn is Coming

Opening Music: Bang on the Drum All Day by Todd Rundgren

Episode 37 - Proper 28C / Ordinary 33C / 26 weeks after Pentecost

Check-in

Second to last week of year C- thinking of Advent? Movember!

Primary Scripture -– Luke 21:5-19  - Warning of Temple and persecution

Interesting passage for pre-Thanksgiving post Stewardship
The riches of the temple are not important - they will be thrown down (but my words will not pass away v 33)
The following is a response to the disciples question:
False prophets claiming the time is near
Wars
Earthquakes
famines
plagues
Persecution
betrayal
in short - YOU WILL NOT KNOW!
The disciples are not asking about the end time, but of the destruction of the temple- all of which happened in 70 CE about 20 years before the Gospel of Luke was written.
There is a triumphal arch in Rome depicting the sacking of Jerusalem in 70 CE.
Josephus discusses a comet in the sky at the fall of the temple
Rome surrounded Jerusalem before besieging and sacking it
What should amazing us? The beauty of the temple or the love and grace of God?
“Do not be terrified”
So much fear about the end of the world
terrorism
global warming
ZOMBIES!
Opportunity
Endurance- steadfast faithfulness
not “"Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we die" (Isa. 22:13; 1 Cor. 15:32)
Thomas Jefferson Learning Greek on his death bed
Martin Luther planting his apple tree on judgement day - remain vigilant
We are not in control. Only God is.
How do we testify in the midst of persecution?
We are called to be faithful and to trust God- are we content with trusting God?

Secondary scripture - 2 Thessalonians 3:6-13 - Warning against idleness

Cannot remove 2 Thess from historical context
There is a challenging question surrounding 2 Thessalonians: “What significance does this letter have for the life of the church two millennia after its composition?  [It] plainly reflects an atmosphere in which believers are experiencing persecution.  The situation has become so intense that some believers cope with it by imagining that the “day of the Lord is already here” (2:2), while others refuse to participate in the world of work (3:6-16).  The author probably imagines that his enraged reminders about God’s inevitable justice will serve to comfort his audience; however, those same reminders sound a harsh note for readers removed from [its] time and situation.”  Beverly Roberts Gaventa (Interpretation: First and Second Thessalonians, p. 95) 
Rep. Kevin Cramer quoted this verse in response to someone posting Matthew 25:36-43 on his Facebook page
Using this passage to moralize against the poor is to misuse the text.  This ignores the whole of Scripture that commends people to give away their wealth in support of the poor.  
This cannot be used as proof that poor people are lazy, and should thus be ignored (or worse).  The ultimate goal of this admonition is to bring the people back into the community.
First two chapters deal with outside pressure and reliance upon God.  Chapter 3 shifts to inner workings of the community.
Warning against idleness and undisciplined
Beverly Gaventa, in Texts for Preaching, stresses that ataktos is about behavior that is “insubordinate or irresponsible” (p. 599).
Idleness takes the shape of eating the food of others, but it goes to a deeper motivation that is detrimental to the community.
Especially in times of persecution, both physical and economic, this behavior goes deeper than being “lazy.”
Unknown motivation for this behavior
Is it linked to thinking “The day of the Lord has come”? So there is no need to put in the work for a long-term commitment?
Are they so discouraged by persecution that there is no motivation to participate.
Being a part of the community requires something in return.
Appeals to “tradition,” of the apostles.
There are responsibilities that come along with being part of the community
Adam Hamilton paraphrase: “Your privileges are revoked upon membership.  You lose the good parking place. You lose the good seats.  You lose the good worship times.”
Michael Kinnamon paraphrase: “What is your responsibility as a person in the community to participate in the act of worship?  You are cheating others of your presence, gifts, and talents when you are not at the table.”
putting their own food on the table, not their table - the communal table
The question should not be, “Do I need to go to church today?” but instead, “Who needs me to be there in worship today?”
Being judgmental vs using good judgment
To a comfortable, middle class Christian, this seems like advice to be the worst kind of Christian.
Feel like passive-aggressive shunning.
Being judgmental is not a Christian virtue.  Jesus warned against pointing out the speck in your neighbor’s eye.
What about when one’s actions are detrimental to the community?
This advice does not include public shame
All directions are to reminders to keep the faith, not to admonish those that are struggling.
The “undisciplined life” includes “meddling in other people’s business.”
