Volume 9, Issue 6

February 9, 2024

THIS SUNDAY: February 11, 2024

Last Sunday after Epiphany

2 Kings 2:9-12

Our first reading centers on the transfer of power and authority from the prophet Elijah to Elisha. Their travels, which retrace the path of Joshua back to Moab (the place where Moses died) and the parting of the waters, demonstrate that Elisha and Elijah are legitimate successors of the great prophet Moses.

2 Corinthians 4:5-6

The spotlight of Christian ministry is not on the people who carry out ministry but on the Lord Jesus Christ. Just as God made light shine at creation, God makes the light of Jesus Christ shine in our lives through Christian ministry.

Mark 9:2-9

Jesus' closest disciples – Peter, James, and John – witness his divine transformation and the appearances of Moses and Elijah, the two great Israelite prophets. This all happens right before Jesus makes his way to Jerusalem to face betrayal, arrest, and death on a criminal's cross, thus one purpose for Jesus' divine appearance is to reassure his disciples of the true nature and origin of Jesus.
