Reading 1, Ex 17:4-6 : Stream from the rock .

4 So Moses cried to the LORD, "What shall I do with this people? They are almost ready to stone me."

5 And the LORD said to Moses, "Pass on before the people, taking with you some of the elders of Israel; and take in your hand the rod with which you struck the Nile, and go.

6 Behold, I will stand before you there on the rock at Horeb; and you shall strike the rock, and water shall come out of it, that the people may drink." And Moses did so, in the sight of the elders of Israel.


Reading 2, Acts 2:29-36 (2:14-36) : God raised Jesus whom you crucified

29 "Brethren, I may say to you confidently of the patriarch David that he both died and was buried, and his tomb is with us to this day.

30 Being therefore a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him that he would set one of his descendants upon his throne,

31 he foresaw and spoke of the resurrection of the Christ, that he was not abandoned to Hades, nor did his flesh see corruption.

32 This Jesus God raised up, and of that we all are witnesses.

33 Being therefore exalted at the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, he has poured out this which you see and hear.

34 For David did not ascend into the heavens; but he himself says, 'The Lord said to my Lord, Sit at my right hand,

35 till I make thy enemies a stool for thy feet.'

36 Let all the house of Israel therefore know assuredly that God has made him both Lord and Christ, this Jesus whom you crucified."


Reading 3, Eph 2:14-22 : Peace is through the Cross.

14 For he is our peace, who has made us both one, and has broken down the dividing wall of hostility,

15 by abolishing in his flesh the law of commandments and ordinances, that he might create in himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace,

16 and might reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross, thereby bringing the hostility to an end.

17 And he came and preached peace to you who were far off and peace to those who were near;

18 for through him we both have access in one Spirit to the Father.

19 So then you are no longer strangers and sojourners, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God,

20 built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone,

21 in whom the whole structure is joined together and grows into a holy temple in the Lord;

22 in whom you also are built into it for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.

 


Gospel, Jn 14:1-6 : Jesus is the way, the Truth and the Life.

1 നിങ്ങളുടെ ഹൃദയം അസ്വസ്ഥമാകേണ്ടാ. ദൈവത്തില്‍ വിശ്വസിക്കുവിന്‍; എന്നിലും വിശ്വസിക്കുവിന്‍.2 എന്‍െറ പിതാവിന്‍െറ ഭവനത്തില്‍ അനേകം വാസസ്ഥലങ്ങളുണ്ട്. ഇല്ലായിരുന്നെങ്കില്‍ നിങ്ങള്‍ക്കു സ്ഥലമൊരുക്കാന്‍ പോകുന്നുവെന്നു ഞാന്‍ നിങ്ങളോടു പറയുമായിരുന്നോ?3 ഞാന്‍ പോയി നിങ്ങള്‍ക്കു സ്ഥലം ഒരുക്കിക്കഴിയുമ്പോള്‍ ഞാന്‍ ആയിരിക്കുന്നിടത്തു നിങ്ങളും ആയിരിക്കേണ്ടതിനു ഞാന്‍ വീണ്ടും വന്ന് നിങ്ങളെയും കൂട്ടിക്കൊണ്ടുപോകും.4   ഞാന്‍ പോകുന്നിടത്തേക്കുള്ള വഴി നിങ്ങള്‍ക്കറിയാം.5 തോമസ് പറഞ്ഞു: കര്‍ത്താവേ, നീ എവിടേക്കു പോകുന്നുവെന്നു ഞങ്ങള്‍ക്കറിഞ്ഞുകൂടാ. പിന്നെ വഴി ഞങ്ങള്‍ എങ്ങനെ അറിയും ? 6   യേശു പറഞ്ഞു: വഴിയും സത്യവും ജീവനും ഞാനാണ്. എന്നിലൂടെയല്ലാതെ ആരും പിതാവിന്‍െറ അടുക്കലേക്കു വരുന്നില്ല.
