Scripture Reading for
The Lectionary According to the Common Calendar
12 Now when Jesus had heard that John was cast into prison, He departed into Galilee. 13 And leaving Nazareth, He came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is upon the seacoast in the regions of Zebulun and Naphtali, 14 that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying,
17 From that time Jesus began to preach and to say,
18 And Jesus, walking by the Sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishers. 19 And He said unto them,
20 And they straightway left their nets and followed Him.
21 And going on from thence He saw two other brethren, James the son of Zebedee and John his brother, in a boat with Zebedee their father, mending their nets. And He called them, 22 and they immediately left the boat and their father, and followed Him.
23 And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues and preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom, and healing all manner of sickness and all manner of disease among the people. 24 And His fame went throughout all Syria. And they brought unto Him all sick people who were taken with divers diseases and torments, and those who were possessed with devils, and those who were lunatic, and those who had the palsy; and He healed them. 25 And there followed Him great multitudes of people from Galilee and from Decapolis, and from Jerusalem and from Judea, and from beyond the Jordan.
11 And as the lame man who had been healed held on to Peter and John, all the people ran together unto them in the porch, which is called Solomon's, greatly wondering. 12 And when Peter saw it, he answered unto the people, "Ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this? Or why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man walk? 13 The God of Abraham and of Isaac and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, hath glorified His Son Jesus, whom ye delivered up, and denied Him in the presence of Pilate when he was determined to let Him go. 14 But ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you, 15 and killed the Prince of Life whom God hath raised from the dead, of which we are witnesses. 16 And His name, through faith in His name, hath made this man strong, whom ye see and know. Yea, the faith which is by Him hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all.
17 "And now, brethren, I know that through ignorance ye did it, as did also your rulers. 18 But those things which God before had shown by the mouth of all His prophets, that Christ should suffer, He hath thus fulfilled. 19 Repent ye therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out when the times of refreshing shall come from the presence of the Lord. 20 Then He shall send Jesus Christ, who before was preached unto you, 21 whom Heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began. 22 For Moses truly said unto the fathers, `A Prophet shall the Lord your God raise up unto you from your brethren, like unto me; Him shall ye hear in all things whatsoever He shall say unto you. 23 And it shall come to pass that every soul who will not hear that Prophet shall be destroyed from among the people.' 24 Yea, and all the prophets from Samuel and those who follow after, as many as have spoken, have likewise foretold of these days. 25 Ye are the children of the prophets and of the covenant which God made with our fathers, saying unto Abraham, `And in thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed.' 26 Unto you first, God, having raised up His Son Jesus, sent Him to bless you in turning every one of you away from his iniquities."
18 And the LORD God said, "It is not good that
the man should be alone; I will make him a helper meet for him." 19
And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and
every fowl of the air, and brought them unto Adam to see what he would
call them; and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was
the name thereof.
24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife; and they shall be one flesh. 25 And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
