We get our choice this week between two texts. One is the lectionary text (Mark) and the other is the text from All Saints’ Day (John) which can be transferred. Most churches I’ve served observe All Saints’ on a Sunday, so I thought I’d do both.
In the first, we tackle Jesus’s teaching on the Greatest Commandment. Particularly, the idea that the key to the answer Jesus gives is not found in the meaning behind, but the words themselves. Because the words aren’t precisely the ones we take them for.
In the second, we go dive into the idea that we treat Jesus like a superhero. And even if he were, we would still treat Him wrong.
Eating Scripture is a short video series in which we explore the juicy and the crunchy in this week’s gospel in four minutes or fewer.
