​​Gospel

Mark 8: 31-38

 8:31-38 Then he began to teach them that the Son of Man must undergo great suffering, and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again.

8:32  He said all this quite openly.  And Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him.

8:33  But turning and looking at his disciples, he rebuked Peter and said, "Get behind me, Satan!  For you are setting your mind not on divine things but on human things."

8:34  He called the crowd with his disciples, and said to them, "If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.

8:35  For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake, and for the sake of the gospel, will save it.

8:36  For what will it profit them to gain the whole world and forfeit their life?

8:37  Indeed, what can they give in return for their life?

8:38  Those who are ashamed of me and of my words in the adulterous and sinful generation, of them the Son of Man will also be ashamed when he comes in the glory of his Father with the holy angels."

Old Testament

Genesis  17: 1-7, 15-16

17:1  When Abram was ninety-nine years old, the LORD appeared to Abram, and said to him, "I am God Almighty; walk before me, and be blameless.

17:2  And I will make my covenant between me and you, and will make you exceedingly numerous."

17:3  Then Abram fell on his face; and God said to him,

17:4  "As for me, this is my covenant with you:  You shall be the ancestor of a multitude of nations.

17:5  No longer shall your name be Abram, but you name shall be Abraham; for I have made you the ancestor of a multitude of nations.

17:6  I will make you exceedingly fruitful; and I will make nations of you, and kings shall come from you.

17:7  I will establish my covenant between me and you, and your offspring after you throughout their generations, for an everlasting covenant, to be God to you and to your offspring after you.

17:15  God said to Abraham, "As for Sarai your wife, you shall not call her Sarai, but Sarah shall be her name.

17:16  I will bless her, and moreover I will give you a son by her.  I will bless her, and she shall give rise to nations; kings of peoples shall come from her."


Psalter 22: 23-31

22:23  You who fear the LORD, praise him!  All your offspring of Jacob, glorify him; stand in awe of him, all you offspring of Israel!

22:24  For he did not despise or abhor the affliction of the afflicted; he did not hide his face from me, but heard when I cried to him.

​22:25  From you comes my praise in the great congregation; my vows I will pay before those who fear him.

22:26  The poor shall eat and be satisfied; those who seek him shall praise the LORD.  May your hearts live forever!

22:27  All the ends of the earth shall remember and turn to the LORD; and all the families of the nations shall worship before him.

22:28  For dominion belongs to the LORD, and he rules over the nations.

22:29  To him, indeed, shall all who sleep in the earth bow down; before him shall bow all who go down to the dust, and I shall live for him.

22:30  Posterity will serve him; future generations will be told about the Lord,

22:31  and proclaim his deliverance to a people yet unborn, saying that he has done it.
