Readings for Sunday November 9th 2014
First Reading
Isaiah 10.33-11.9
Isaiah was writing just before the
Assyrian invasion (701 BC) which
Isaiah saw as God’s punishment
for Judah’s misdeeds. The bough
and the trees are a metaphor for
Judah’s current rulers.
Look, the Sovereign, the LORD of
hosts, will lop the boughs with
terrifying power; the tallest trees
will be cut down, and the lofty will
be brought low. 34He will hack
down the thickets of the forest with
an axe, and Lebanon with its
majestic trees will fall. 1A shoot
shall come out from the stock of
Jesse, and a branch shall grow out
of his roots. 2The spirit of the
LORD shall rest on him, the spirit
of wisdom and understanding,
the spirit of counsel and might,
the spirit of knowledge and the fear
of the LORD. 3His delight shall be
in the fear of the LORD. He shall
not judge by what his eyes see, or
decide by what his ears hear; 4but
with righteousness he shall judge
the poor, and decide with equity for
the meek of the earth; he shall
strike the earth with the rod of his
mouth, and with the breath of his
lips he shall kill the wicked.
Righteousness shall be the belt
around his waist,
and faithfulness the belt around his
loins.6The wolf shall live with the
lamb, the leopard shall lie down
with the kid, the calf and the lion
and the fatling together,
and a little child shall lead them.
The cow and the bear shall graze,
their young shall lie down together;
and the lion shall eat straw like the
ox. 8The nursing child shall play
over the hole of the asp, and the
weaned child shall put its hand on
the adder’s den.
They will not hurt or destroy
on all my holy mountain;
for the earth will be full of the
knowledge of the LORD
as the waters cover the sea.

Psalm 23
The images of the Lord as a shepherd and His giving a banquet are
perpetuated in later Old and New Testament writings.
Refrain: I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever
The Lord is my shepherd; therefore can I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures and leads me beside still
I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever
He shall refresh my soul and guide me in the paths of righteousness for
his name’s sake.
Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no
evil; for you are with me;
your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever
You spread a table before me in the presence of those who trouble me;
you have anointed my head with oil and my cup shall be full.
Surely goodness and loving mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever
Second Reading
Revelation 21.1-7
Written whilst incarcerated on the
island of Patmos John (The Divine)
describes a more glorious future
using graphic imagery such as the
sea, as a source of evil, being
banished – an idealised new city
appearing from heaven – the
mystic marriage of Christ and His
church – clear, fresh water
symbolising the Holy Spirit.
I saw a new heaven and a new
earth; for the first heaven and the
first earth had passed away, and
the sea was no more. 2And I saw
the holy city, the new Jerusalem,
coming down out of heaven from
God, prepared as a bride adorned
for her husband. 3And I heard a
loud voice from the throne saying,
‘See, the home of God is among
mortals. He will dwell with them;
they will be his peoples, and God
himself will be with them; 4he will
wipe every tear from their eyes.
Death will be no more; mourning
and crying and pain will be no
more, for the first things have
passed away.’5And the one who
was seated on the throne said,
‘See, I am making all things new.’
Also he said, ‘Write this, for these
words are trustworthy and true.’
Then he said to me, ‘It is done! I
am the Alpha and the Omega, the
beginning and the end. To the
thirsty I will give water as a gift from
the spring of the water of life.
Those who conquer will inherit
these things, and I will be their God
and they will be my children.’
Gospel Reading
John 15.9-17
This is part of the great discourse
Jesus had with His disciples at the
Last Supper after Judas had left.
The significance of being a friend is
that one’s status is superior to that
of a slave or servant. Friends can
converse and ask - thus opening up
the promise of prayer being
Jesus said to his disciples: 9‘As the
Father has loved me, so I have
loved you; abide in my love. 10If you
keep my commandments, you will
abide in my love, just as I have kept
my Father’s commandments and
abide in his love. 11I have said these
things to you so that my joy may be
in you, and that your joy may be
complete. 12‘This is my
commandment, that you love one
another as I have loved you. 13No
one has greater love than this, to
lay down one’s life for one’s friends.
You are my friends if you do what
I command you. 15I do not call you
servants any longer, because the
servant does not know what the
master is doing; but I have called
you friends, because I have made
known to you everything that I have
heard from my Father. 16You did not
choose me but I chose you. And I
appointed you to go and bear fruit,
fruit that will last, so that the Father
will give you whatever you ask him
in my name. 17I am giving you these
commands so that you may love
one another.’
