contemplating the Scriptures

1 Kings 18:20-21,(22-29),30-39

It is a time when many people in Israel, the northen kingdom, prefer worshipping foreign pagan gods (including Baal, the rain god), to worshipping the one true God. It is also a time of drought and famine.

Galatians 1:1-12

Paul writes to the churches of Galatia, in central Asia Minor. While it was usual for Paul to include a note of thanksgiving for the Christian community, here he does not.

Luke 7:1-10

After choosing his apostles, Jesus has descended to the north-western shore of the Sea of Galilee, where he has taught many. This story is the first of several in which Jesus demonstrates that his message is for all who respond positively to it.
