contemplating the Scriptures

Exodus 3:1-15

After killing an Egyptian who was killing an Israelite, Moses has gone into exile in Midian. There he has been met with a warm welcome and has married Zipporah, Jethro’s daughter.

Romans 12:9-21

In preceding chapters, Paul has explained what God has done for those who have faith in Christ. He has begun to tell us what our response should be, what is involved in living the ethical life and what obedience to God means – in other words, what it means to serve Christ.

Matthew 16:21-28

Jesus has been instructing his disciples about the mission they are to carry out on his behalf, about telling the good news. While many are confused as to who Jesus is, Peter has identified him as the Messiah, the one expected to come at the end of time to judge all people, and to honour those who are faithful to God.
