Second reading

SECOND READING

R: The second reading for today is written in the 3rd Chapter of Ephesians beginning at verse one.

Ephesians 3:1-12CEV

God reveals his age-long purpose in Christ


Ephesians 3 1 12

Ephesians 3:1-12

R: Christ Jesus made me his prisoner, so that I could help you Gentiles.

2You have surely heard about God's kindness in choosing me to help you.

3In fact, this letter tells you a little about how God has shown me his mysterious ways.


Ephesians 3 1 121

Ephesians 3:1-12

4As you read the letter, you will also find out how well I really do understand the mystery about Christ. 5No one knew about this mystery until God's Spirit told it to his holy apostles and prophets.


Ephesians 3 1 122

Ephesians 3:1-12

6And the mystery is this:

Because of Christ Jesus, the good news has given the Gentiles a share in the promises that God gave to the Jews. God has also let the Gentiles be part of the same body.


Ephesians 3 1 123

Ephesians 3:1-12

7God treated me with kindness. His power worked in me, and it became my job to spread the good news.

8I am the least important of all God's people. But God was kind and chose me to tell the Gentiles that because of Christ there are blessings that cannot be measured.


Ephesians 3 1 124

Ephesians 3:1-12

9God, who created everything, wanted me to help everyone understand the mysterious plan that had always been hidden in his mind.


Ephesians 3 1 125

Ephesians 3:1-12

10Then God would use the church to show the powers and authorities in the spiritual world that he has many different kinds of wisdom.11God did this according to his eternal plan. And he was able to do what he had planned because of all that Christ Jesus our Lord had done.


Ephesians 3 1 126

Ephesians 3:1-12

12Christ now gives us courage and confidence, so that we can come to God by faith.

This is the word of the Lord.

C: Thanks be to God.

Gospel

gospel

M: The Holy Gospel is written in 2nd Chapter of Matthew beginning at verse 1.

C: ♫ Glory to you, O Lord.

Matthew 2:1-12CEV

Wise men worship Christ the king


Matthew 2 1 12

Matthew 2:1-12

M: When Jesus was born in the village of Bethlehem in Judea, Herod was king. During this time some wise men from the east came to Jerusalem  2and said, "Where is the child born to be king of the Jews? We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him.”


Matthew 2 1 121

Matthew 2:1-12

3When King Herod heard about this, he was worried, and so was everyone else in Jerusalem.  

4Herod brought together the chief priests and the teachers of the Law of Moses and asked them, "Where will the Messiah be born?”


Matthew 2 1 122

Matthew 2:1-12

5They told him, "He will be born in Bethlehem, just as the prophet wrote, 6'Bethlehem in the land of Judea, you are very important among the towns of Judea. From your town will come a leader, who will be like a shepherd for my people Israel.’


Matthew 2 1 123

Matthew 2:1-12

7Herod secretly called in the wise men and asked them when they had first seen the star.   8He told them, "Go to Bethlehem and search carefully for the child. As soon as you find him, let me know. I want to go and worship him too.“


Matthew 2 1 124

Matthew 2:1-12

9The wise men listened to what the king said and then left. And the star they had seen in the east went on ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was.   10They were thrilled and excited to see the star.


Matthew 2 1 125

Matthew 2:1-12

11When the men went into the house and saw the child with Mary, his mother, they knelt down and worshiped him. They took out their gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh and gave them to him. 


Matthew 2 1 126

Matthew 2:1-12

12Later they were warned in a dream not to return to Herod, and they went back home by another road. 

This is the Gospel of the Lord.

C: ♫ Praise to you, O Christ.
