For Sunday, Oct. 23, 2011: Proper 25, Year A

THE READING    Deuteronomy 34:1-12

The book of Deuteronomy is the last of the five books of the Law that begin the Bible, and it is very nearly the end of Israel’s epic journey from slavery in Egypt to the land of promise. It is, however, the end for Moses: though he has walked with God like no other human before, even he must die and pass the torch to the next generation.

 

THE EPISTLE    1 Thessalonians 2:1-8

Moses believed God’s promises, even though he did not live to see all of them fulfilled. In writing to the church at Thessalonica, Paul reminds his readers what it was that made them believe him and through him the gospel: he had spoken it credibly, without intent to make a buck and without impure motives, and in love.
