Psalm: 121, 122, 123

Meditation

Acts: This is an intriguing event in that it shows how desperate people can get because of fear. These “Christians” are upsetting the Jewish status quo and the Jews fear a challenge to their deeply held traditions. Jesus faced the same issue: His disciples were caught eating something without first washing their hands. Jesus retorted with a quote from Isaiah 29:13 [Mark 7:6-8] “These people come near to Me with mouth and honor Me with their lips, but their hearts are far from Me. Their worship of Me is made up of only rules taught by men.”

Gospel: Mark 11:27 – 12:12

New Testament: Acts 23:12-24

Old Testament: 2 Samuel 18:9-18
