Chapter 4:16-30
The Rejection at Nazareth

16He came to Nazareth, where he had grown up, and went according to his custom into the synagogue on the sabbath day. He stood up to read

17and was handed a scroll of the prophet Isaiah. He unrolled the scroll and found the passage where it was written:

18“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
because he has anointed me
to bring glad tidings to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to captives
and recovery of sight to the blind,
to let the oppressed go free,

19and to proclaim a year acceptable to the Lord.

20Rolling up the scroll, he handed it back to the attendant and sat down, and the eyes of all in the synagogue looked intently at him.

21He said to them, “Today this scripture passage is fulfilled in your hearing.”

22And all spoke highly of him and were amazed at the gracious words that came from his mouth. They also asked, “Isn’t this the son of Joseph?”

23He said to them, “Surely you will quote me this proverb, ‘Physician, cure yourself,’ and say, ‘Do here in your native place the things that we heard were done in Capernaum.’”

24And he said, “Amen, I say to you, no prophet is accepted in his own native place.

25 Indeed, I tell you, there were many widows in Israel in the days of Elijah when the sky was closed for three and a half years and a severe famine spread over the entire land.

26 It was to none of these that Elijah was sent, but only to a widow in Zarephath in the land of Sidon.

27Again, there were many lepers in Israel during the time of Elisha the prophet; yet not one of them was cleansed, but only Naaman the Syrian.”

28When the people in the synagogue heard this, they were all filled with fury.

29They rose up, drove him out of the town, and led him to the brow of the hill on which their town had been built, to hurl him down headlong.

30But he passed through the midst of them and went away.

Chapter 8:31-59
Jesus and Abraham

31Jesus then said to those Jews who believed in him, “If you remain in my word, you will truly be my disciples,

32and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.

33They answered him, “We are descendants of Abraham and have never been enslaved to anyone. How can you say, ‘You will become free’?”

34Jesus answered them, “Amen, amen, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave of sin.

35A slave does not remain in a household forever, but a son always remains.

36So if a son frees you, then you will truly be free.

37I know that you are descendants of Abraham. But you are trying to kill me, because my word has no room among you.
38 I tell you what I have seen in the Father’s presence; then do what you have heard from the Father.”

39 They answered and said to him, “Our father is Abraham.” Jesus said to them, “If you were Abraham’s children, you would be doing the works of Abraham.

40But now you are trying to kill me, a man who has told you the truth that I heard from God; Abraham did not do this.

41You are doing the works of your father!” [So] they said to him, “We are not illegitimate. We have one Father, God.”

42Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me, for I came from God and am here; I did not come on my own, but he sent me.

43Why do you not understand what I am saying? Because you cannot bear to hear my word.

44You belong to your father the devil and you willingly carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning and does not stand in truth, because there is no truth in him. When he tells a lie, he speaks in character, because he is a liar and the father of lies.

45But because I speak the truth, you do not believe me.

46Can any of you charge me with sin? If I am telling the truth, why do you not believe me?

47Whoever belongs to God hears the words of God; for this reason you do not listen, because you do not belong to God.”

48The Jews answered and said to him, “Are we not right in saying that you are a Samaritan and are possessed?”

49Jesus answered, “I am not possessed; I honor my Father, but you dishonor me.

50I do not seek my own glory; there is one who seeks it and he is the one who judges.

51Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever keeps my word will never see death.”

52(So) the Jews said to him, “Now we are sure that you are possessed. Abraham died, as did the prophets, yet you say, ‘Whoever keeps my word will never taste death.’

53Are you greater than our father Abraham, who died? Or the prophets, who died? Who do you make yourself out to be?”

54Jesus answered, “If I glorify myself, my glory is worth nothing; but it is my Father who glorifies me, of whom you say, ‘He is our God.’

55You do not know him, but I know him. And if I should say that I do not know him, I would be like you a liar. But I do know him and I keep his word.

56Abraham your father rejoiced to see my day; he saw it and was glad.

57So the Jews said to him, “You are not yet fifty years old and you have seen Abraham?”

58 Jesus said to them,“Amen, amen, I say to you, before Abraham came to be, I AM.”

59So they picked up stones to throw at him; but Jesus hid and went out of the temple area.

Chapter 5:1-6
The Importance of Faith

1For freedom Christ set us free; so stand firm and do not submit again to the yoke of slavery.

2It is I, Paul, who am telling you that if you have yourselves circumcised, Christ will be of no benefit to you.

3Once again I declare to every man who has himself circumcised that he is bound to observe the entire law.

4You are separated from Christ, you who are trying to be justified by law; you have fallen from grace.

5 For through the Spirit, by faith, we await the hope of righteousness.

6 For in Christ Jesus, neither circumcision nor uncircumcision counts for anything, but only faith working through love.

Chapter 2:5-18
Exaltation through Abasement

5For it was not to angels that he subjected the world to come, of which we are speaking.

6Instead, someone has testified somewhere:
“What is man that you are mindful of him,
or the son of man that you care for him?

7You made him for a little while lower than the angels;
you crowned him with glory and honor,

8subjecting all things under his feet.”
In “subjecting” all things [to him], he left nothing not “subject to him.” Yet at present we do not see “all things subject to him,”

9but we do see Jesus “crowned with glory and honor” because he suffered death, he who “for a little while” was made “lower than the angels,” that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone.

10For it was fitting that he, for whom and through whom all things exist, in bringing many children to glory, should make the leader to their salvation perfect through suffering.

11He who consecrates and those who are being consecrated all have one origin. Therefore, he is not ashamed to call them “brothers,”

“I will proclaim your name to my brothers,
in the midst of the assembly I will praise you”;

13and again:
“I will put my trust in him”;
and again:
“Behold, I and the children God has given me.”

14Now since the children share in blood and flesh, he likewise shared in them, that through death he might destroy the one who has the power of death, that is, the devil,

15and free those who through fear of death had been subject to slavery all their life.

16Surely he did not help angels but rather the descendants of Abraham;

17therefore, he had to become like his brothers in every way, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest before God to expiate the sins of the people.

18Because he himself was tested through what he suffered, he is able to help those who are being tested.

Chapter 3:5-17
Renunciation of Vice

5Put to death, then, the parts of you that are earthly: immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and the greed that is idolatry.

6Because of these the wrath of God is coming [upon the disobedient].

7By these you too once conducted yourselves, when you lived in that way.

8But now you must put them all away: anger, fury, malice, slander, and obscene language out of your mouths.

9Stop lying to one another, since you have taken off the old self with its practices

10 and have put on the new self, which is being renewed, for knowledge, in the image of its creator.

 11Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcision and uncircumcision, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all and in all.

12Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, heartfelt compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience,

13bearing with one another and forgiving one another, if one has a grievance against another; as the Lord has forgiven you, so must you also do.

14And over all these put on love, that is, the bond of perfection.

15And let the peace of Christ control your hearts, the peace into which you were also called in one body. And be thankful.

16Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, as in all wisdom you teach and admonish one another, singing psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs with gratitude in your hearts to God.

17And whatever you do, in word or in deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

Chapter 5:19-30
The Work of the Son

19 Jesus answered and said to them, “Amen, amen, I say to you, a son cannot do anything on his own, but only what he sees his father doing; for what he does, his son will do also.

20For the Father loves his Son and shows him everything that he himself does, and he will show him greater works than these, so that you may be amazed.

21For just as the Father raises the dead and gives life, so also does the Son give life to whomever he wishes.

22Nor does the Father judge anyone, but he has given all judgment to his Son,

23so that all may honor the Son just as they honor the Father. Whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent him.

24Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes in the one who sent me has eternal life and will not come to condemnation, but has passed from death to life.

25Amen, amen, I say to you, the hour is coming and is now here when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of God, and those who hear will live.

26For just as the Father has life in himself, so also he gave to his Son the possession of life in himself.

27And he gave him power to exercise judgment, because he is the Son of Man.

28 Do not be amazed at this, because the hour is coming in which all who are in the tombs will hear his voice

 29and will come out, those who have done good deeds to the resurrection of life, but those who have done wicked deeds to the resurrection of condemnation.

30“I cannot do anything on my own; I judge as I hear, and my judgment is just, because I do not seek my own will but the will of the one who sent me.


Chapter 65:1-5
Thanksgiving for God's Blessings

 1For the leader. A psalm of David. A song.


2To you we owe our hymn of praise,
O God on Zion;
To you our vows must be fulfilled,

3you who hear our prayers.
To you all flesh must come

4with its burden of wicked deeds.
We are overcome by our sins;
only you can pardon them.

5Blessed the one whom you will choose and bring
to dwell in your courts.
May we be filled with the good things of your house,
your holy temple!


EFESO 4:17-18  5:15-17 HEBREWS 4"7

17Sa pangalan ng Panginoon, ito ang sinasabi ko sa inyo: huwag na kayong mamuhay tulad ng pamumuhay ng mga walang pananampalataya sa Diyos. Walang kabuluhan ang kanilang iniisip, 18at wala silang pang-unawa. Dahil sa kanilang kamangmangan at katigasan ng ulo, wala silang bahagi sa buhay na kaloob ng Diyos.
15Kaya't mag-ingat kayo kung paano kayo namumuhay. Mamuhay kayong tulad ng matatalino at di tulad ng mga mangmang. 16Samantalahin ninyo ang bawat pagkakataon na kayo'y makagawa ng mabuti sapagkat punung-puno ng kasamaan ang daigdig ngayon. 17Huwag kayong maging hangal. Unawain ninyo kung ano ang kalooban ng Panginoon.



"Tinatawag kayo ng Diyos sa pamamagitan ng Mabuting Balitang ipinahahayag namin sa inyo, upang makasama sa kaluwalhatian ng ating Panginoong Jesu-Cristo."


"The lights of God and Jesus Christ and Holy Spirit and
Bible lights us all with the lights and
miracles of Mother Mary"
