2nd Sunday of Lent

And again He entered Capernaum after some days, and it was heard that He was in the house. Immediately many gathered together, so that there was no longer room to receive them, not even near the door. And He preached the word to them. Then they came to Him, bringing a paralytic who was carried by four men. And when they could not come near Him because of the crowd, they uncovered the roof where He was. So when they had broken through, they let down the bed on which the paralytic was lying. When Jesus saw their faith, He said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven you.” And some of the scribes were sitting there and reasoning in their hearts, “Why does this Man speak blasphemies like this? Who can forgive sins but God alone?” But immediately, when Jesus perceived in His spirit that they reasoned thus within themselves, He said to them, “Why do you reason about these things in your hearts? Which is easier, to say to the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven you,’ or to say, ‘Arise, take up your bed and walk’? But that you may know that the Son of Man has power on earth to forgive sins” – He said to the paralytic, “I say to you, arise, take up your bed, and go to your house.” Immediately he arose, took up the bed, and went out in the presence of them all, so that all were amazed and glorified God, saying, “We never saw anything like this!”
I am the door. If anyone enters by Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd gives His life for the sheep. But a hireling, he who is not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them. The hireling flees because he is a hireling and does not care about the sheep. I am the good shepherd; and I know My sheep, and am known by My own. As the Father knows Me, even so I know the Father; and I lay down My life for the sheep. And other sheep I have which are not of this fold; them also I must bring, and they will hear My voice; and there will be one flock and one shepherd.
Пачиста Недеља

И уђе опет у Капернаум после неколико дана; и чу се да је у кући. И одмах скупише се многи тако да не могаху ни пред вратима да се збију; и казиваше им реч. И дођоше к Њему с одузетим кога су носили четворо. И не могући приближити се к Њему од народа открише кућу где Он беше, и прокопавши спустише одар на коме одузети лежаше. А Исус видевши веру њихову рече узетоме: Синко! Опраштају ти се греси твоји. А онде сеђаху неки од књижевника и помишљаху у срцима својим: Шта овај тако хули на Бога? Ко може опраштати грехе осим једног Бога? И одмах разумевши Исус духом својим да они тако помишљају у себи, рече им: Што тако помишљате у срцима својим? Шта је лакше? Рећи узетоме: Опраштају ти се греси, или рећи: Устани и узми одар свој, и ходи? Но да знате да власт има Син човечји на земљи опраштати грехе, (рече узетоме:) Теби говорим: устани и узми одар свој, и иди дома. И уста одмах, и узевши одар изађе пред свима тако да се сви дивљаху и хваљаху Бога говорећи: Никада тога видели нисмо.
Ја сам врата; ко уђе кроза ме спашће се, и ући ће и изићи ће, и пашу ће наћи. Лупеж не долази низашта друго него да украде и убије и погуби; ја дођох да имају живот и изобиље. Ја сам пастир добри; пастир добри душу своју полаже за овце. А најамник, који није пастир, коме нису овце своје, види вука где иде, и оставља овце, и бежи: и вук зграби овце и распуди их; А најамник бежи, јер је најамник и не мари за овце. Ја сам пастир добри и знам своје, и моје мене знају. Као што мене зна Отац и ја знам Оца; и душу своју полажем за овце. И друге овце имам које нису из овог тора, и оне ми ваља довести; и чуће глас мој, и биће једно стадо и један пастир.
