Restoration's Light

Lectionary Text: Matthew 4:12-22

The Lectionary texts for the week of January 22, 2023:

  • Isaiah 9:1-4

  • Psalm 27:1, 4-9

  • 1 Corinthians 1:10-18

  • Matthew 4:12-23

This week we look at Matthew 4:12-23 and the restoration of Israel. It starts with the Light coming to Zebulon and Naphtali, the first two tribes of Israel carried into exile. It ends with the calling of 2 pairs of disciples, also reflecting the restoration of Israel.

The people lived in a dark and shadowy world, but the Light has come in the form of Jesus and the people who live in that light will find peace, love and justice through repentance.
