The Holy Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments are the Word of God, given to us for our instruction in God’s ways (1 Corinthians 10:11); we are called to read, learn, study, and meditate on them to become fully developed followers of Jesus Christ. We invite you to join us on that journey, using some or all of the resources below.
Sunday 3 October 2021 – Pentecost 20
Keep, O Lord, your household the Church in continual godliness; that through your protection it may be free from all adversities, and devotedly serve you in good works, to the glory of your Name; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
Study Questions for Mark 12:13-17

- What new alternative does Jesus’ answer to his opponents add to the debate?
- In your own words, describe what Jesus appears to be telling his questioners about God.
The e100 Readings for this week are:
God’s Covenant with Abram: Genesis 15:1-21
Isaac’s Birth and Binding: Genesis 21:1-22:19
The e100 is a Bible reading plan in which participants can read and reflect over the course of a year on 100 of the most significant passages in the Bible. Taken together, these 100 passages offer a snapshot into the mighty works of God in Creation, Redemption, Sanctification (separating a community of people to himself, for his purposes) and Glorification (his ultimate intention for the restoration of humanity to the fullness of how he made us to be in the beginning).
