Psalms: 112, 113

Meditation

Luke: Whoever thinks that Jesus is “nice” take a gander at this. The Pharisee was nice to Jesus by this invitation; Jesus returns this by insulting him and berating his ilk. The hapless lawyer speaks up, I suppose, in support of the Pharisee (evidently, the lawyer learned nothing from the Pharisee’s experience) and was rewarded with a tongue-lashing for his efforts. This scene is very similar to another episode when the disciples had eaten without first washing their hands (Mark 7:1-4)

Gospel: 

Luke 11:37-52

New Testament:

Revelation 12:1-6

Old Testament:

Ecclus. 28:14-26
