Reading 3, Rom 5: 12-21 : Justification through Christ

12Therefore as sin came into the world through one man and death through sin, and so death spread to all men because all men sinned --
13sin indeed was in the world before the law was given, but sin is not counted where there is no law.
14Yet death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those whose sins were not like the transgression of Adam, who was a type of the one who was to come.
15But the free gift is not like the trespass. For if many died through one man's trespass, much more have the grace of God and the free gift in the grace of that one man Jesus Christ abounded for many.
16And the free gift is not like the effect of that one man's sin. For the judgment following one trespass brought condemnation, but the free gift following many trespasses brings justification.
17If, because of one man's trespass, death reigned through that one man, much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the free gift of righteousness reign in life through the one man Jesus Christ.
18Then as one man's trespass led to condemnation for all men, so one man's act of righteousness leads to acquittal and life for all men.
19For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so by one man's obedience many will be made righteous.
20Law came in, to increase the trespass; but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more,
21so that, as sin reigned in death, grace also might reign through righteousness to eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.


Gospel, Mk 12: 1-12 : Servants of the wineyard

1And he began to speak to them in parables. "A man planted a vineyard, and set a hedge around it, and dug a pit for the wine press, and built a tower, and let it out to tenants, and went into another country.
2When the time came, he sent a servant to the tenants, to get from them some of the fruit of the vineyard.
3And they took him and beat him, and sent him away empty-handed.
4Again he sent to them another servant, and they wounded him in the head, and treated him shamefully.
5And he sent another, and him they killed; and so with many others, some they beat and some they killed.
6He had still one other, a beloved son; finally he sent him to them, saying, `They will respect my son.'
7But those tenants said to one another, `This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and the inheritance will be ours.'
8And they took him and killed him, and cast him out of the vineyard.
9What will the owner of the vineyard do? He will come and destroy the tenants, and give the vineyard to others.
10Have you not read this scripture: `The very stone which the builders rejected has become the head of the corner;
11this was the Lord's doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes'?"
12And they tried to arrest him, but feared the multitude, for they perceived that he had told the parable against them; so they left him and went away.
