Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time
February 1, 2015
Come, let us bow down in worship; let us kneel before the LORD who made us
— Psalm 95:6
According to Moses, the people decided they didn’t
want to hear God’s voice directly any more. It was
much too frightening. Why couldn’t God send human
teachers, prophets, instead? God agreed, but with a
warning. The people had better listen to those teachers,
because they spoke in God’s name.
That arrangement, though, had its own problems,
for them and for us. How do I know this teacher is truly
from God? And if the teacher is from God, are all parts
of the teaching meant for me? We have the Church and
scripture to help us with those questions, but still there
are always a few loose ends.
That is the powerful significance of the sentence in
today’s Gospel: “The people were astonished at his
teaching, for he taught them as one having authority
and not as the scribes.” The people knew that this Jesus
was authentic—truly a teacher sent by God. They knew
it by hearing him.
