Scripture Reading: Jesus Rejected at Nazareth
You know how certain TV shows begin an episode by offering a recap of some of the things that went down previously on…, you fill in the blank with whatever favorite show that you happen to tune into. I enjoy the the new one entitled “New Amsterdam” the hospital show and, of course, “Manifest.” So every week when I watch these shows it’s like “Previously on Mannifest you may recall…,” and then they kind of give the recap. Scripture does the same thing, some scriptures, sometimes. Today’s pericope, that’s Bible talk for episode. Today’s pericope begins by repeating one very important verse that we actually heard in last week’s episode/sermon, and that is “Today, this scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.” A little overlap, a little hinge we’ll call it, between last week and this week.
