The Lectionary According to the Christian Seasons
34 Then there stood up one in the council, a Pharisee named Gamaliel, a doctor of the law held in high repute among all the people, and commanded them to put the apostles outside a little while. 35 And he said unto them, "Ye men of Israel, take heed to yourselves what ye intend to do concerning these men. 36 For before these days Theudas rose up, boasting himself to be somebody, to whom a number of men, about four hundred, joined themselves. He was slain, and all who obeyed him were scattered and brought to nought. 37 After this man, rose up Judas of Galilee in the days of the taxing, and drew away many people after him. He also perished, and all who obeyed him were dispersed. 38 And now I say unto you, refrain from these men and let them alone, for if this counsel or this work be of men, it will come to nought; 39 but if it be of God, ye cannot overthrow it, lest it may happen ye be found even to fight against God." 40 And with him they agreed. And when they had called the apostles back and had beaten them, they commanded that they should not speak in the name of Jesus, and let them go.
41 And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for His name. 42 And daily in the temple and in every house, they ceased not to teach and preach Jesus Christ.
Words of Worship - Matthew 4:4b
1 After these things Jesus went across the Sea of Galilee which is the Sea of Tiberias. 2 And a great multitude followed Him, because they saw His miracles which He did on those who were diseased. 3 And Jesus went up onto a mountain, and there He sat with His disciples.
4 Now the Passover, a feast of the Jews, was nigh. 5 And when Jesus lifted up His eyes and saw a great company coming unto Him, He said unto Philip,
6 And this He said to test him, for He Himself knew what He would do. 7 Philip answered Him, "Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one of them may take a little." 8 One of His disciples, Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, said unto Him, 9 "There is a lad here who hath five barley loaves and two small fishes, but what are they among so many?" 10 And Jesus said,
Now there was much grass in the place; so the men sat down, in number about five thousand. 11 And Jesus took the loaves, and when He had given thanks, He distributed to the disciples, and the disciples to those who were sitting down; and likewise of the fishes, as much as they wanted. 12 When they were filled, He said unto His disciples,
13 Therefore they gathered them together, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above, unto them that had eaten.
14 Then those men, when they had seen the miracle that Jesus had done, said, "This is in truth that Prophet who is coming into the world!" 15 When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and take Him by force to make Him a king, He departed again onto a mountain alone.
