Isaiah 52:7-10

A reading from the Book of the Prophet Isaiah

How beautiful upon the mountains
are the feet of him who brings glad tidings,
announcing peace, bearing good news, announcing salvation,
and saying to Zion,
”Your God is King!”

Hark! Your sentinels raise a cry,
together they shout for joy,
for they see directly, before their eyes,
the Lord restoring Zion.
Break out together in song,
O ruins of Jerusalem!
For the Lord comforts his people,
he redeems Jerusalem.
The Lord has bared his holy arm
in the sight of all the nations;
all the ends of the earth will behold
the salvation of our God.
The word of the Lord.


Psalm 96

Your salvation, Lord, is for all peoples.

Sing to the Lord a new song;
sing to the Lord, all you lands.
Sing to the Lord, bless his name;
announce his salvation, day after day.
Tell his glory among the nations;
among all peoples, his marvelous deeds.

Your salvation, Lord, is for all peoples.

Give to the Lord, you families of nations,
give to the Lord glory and praise;
give to the Lord the glory due his name!

Your salvation, Lord, is for all peoples.

Say among the nations: The Lord is king.
He has made the world firm, not to be moved.
he governs the peoples with equity.

Your salvation, Lord, is for all peoples.


Hebrews 13:12-15, 20-21

A reading from the Letter to the Hebrews

Brothers and sisters:

Jesus also suffered outside the gate, to consecrate the people by his own blood.
Let us then go to him outside the camp, bearing the reproach that he bore.
For here we have no lasting city, but we seek the one that is to come.
Through him then let us continually offer God a sacrifice of praise,
that is, the fruit of lips that confess his name.

May the God of peace, who brought up from the dead
the great shepherd of the sheep
by the Blood of the eternal covenant, Jesus our Lord,
furnish you with all that is good, that you may do his will.
May he carry out in you what is pleasing to him through Jesus Christ,
to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.

The word of the Lord.


Luke 4:16-21

A reading from the holy Gospel according to Luke

At that time, Jesus 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 and was handed a scroll of the prophet Isaiah.
He unrolled the scroll and found the passage where it was written:

“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,
and to proclaim a year acceptable to the Lord.”

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

The Gospel of the Lord.
