Hearing that Jesus had silenced the Sadducees, 

the Pharisees got together. 

One of them, an expert in the law, 

tested him with this question: 

“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” 

Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart

 and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ 

This is the first and greatest commandment. 

And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ 

All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.”


The lectionary readings for this twenty-first Sunday after Pentecost are:

Psalm: Psalm 1
First reading:  Leviticus 19:1-2; 15-18
Second reading: 1 Thessalonians 2:1-8
Gospel:  Matthew 22:34-46


The Collect:

O God our redeemer,

you heard the cry of your people,

and sent your servant Moses

to lead them out of slavery.

Free us from the tyranny of sin and death,

and by the leading of your Spirit

bring us to our promised land;

through Jesus Christ our Lord,

who lives and reigns

with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.
