Psalm: 109

Meditation

Ephesians: Much of this chapter tells of why the Gentiles were treated as outcasts by the Jews. No self-respecting rabbi would deign to enter a Gentile’s home but apparently Jesus had no such qualms. So the Gentiles were cut off from God. Too bad for them. But so were the Jews. The Jews were kept from God by the veil in the Temple – only the high priest could enter the Holy of Holies and that but once a year on the Day of Atonement. So the Jews also experienced alienation from God until Jesus died.

Gospel: Matthew 7:28-8:4

New Testament: Ephesians 2:11-22

Old Testament: Num. 11:16-17; 24-29
