    History Redeemed: Scott Hahn Reflects on the Third Sunday in Ordinary Time

    History Redeemed: Scott Hahn Reflects on the Third Sunday in Ordinary Time

    Today’s Liturgy gives us a lesson in ancient Israelite geography and history.

    Isaiah’s prophecy in today’s First Reading is quoted by Matthew in today’s Gospel. Both intend to recall the apparent fall of the everlasting kingdom promised to David (see 2 Samuel 7:12–13; Psalm 89; 132:11–12).

    La historia redimida: Scott Hahn reflexiona sobre el 3º Domingo de Tiempo Ordinario

    La liturgia de hoy nos da una lección de geografía e historia israelita antigua.

    En el Evangelio de hoy, Mateo menciona la profecía de Isaías que aparece en la primera lectura. Ambas citas buscan recordar la aparente caída del reino eterno prometido a David (cf. 2 S 7,12–14; Sal 89; Sal 132, 11–12).

    Ofrenda perfecta: Scott Hahn reflexiona sobre el 2º Domingo de Tiempo Ordinario

    Jesús habla por medio del profeta Isaías en la primera lectura de hoy.

    Nos habla sobre la misión que el Padre le ha dado desde el vientre materno: “El Señor me dijo: ‘tú eres mi Siervo’”.

    Nuestro Señor, Siervo e Hijo, fue enviado para liderar un nuevo éxodo, para levantar las tribus exiliadas de Israel, para reunirlas y restituirlas a Dios. Más aún, para ser luz de las naciones y que la salvación de Dios llegue a los confines de la tierra (cf. Hch 13,46–47).

    Perfect Offering: Scott Hahn Reflects on the Second Sunday in Ordinary Time

    Perfect Offering: Scott Hahn Reflects on the Second Sunday in Ordinary Time

    Jesus speaks through the prophet Isaiah in today’s First Reading.

    He tells us of the mission given to Him by the Father from the womb: “‘You are My servant,’ He said to Me.” Servant and Son, our Lord was sent to lead a new exodus—to raise up the exiled tribes of Israel, to gather and restore them to God. More than that, He was to be a light to the nations, that God’s salvation may reach to the ends of the earth (see Acts 13:46–47).

    Anointed Ones: Scott Hahn Reflects on the Baptism of the Lord

    Anointed Ones: Scott Hahn Reflects on the Baptism of the Lord

    Jesus presents himself for baptism in today’s Gospel not because He is a sinner, but to fulfill the word of God proclaimed by His prophets. He must be baptized to reveal that He is the Christ (“anointed one”)—the Spirit-endowed Servant promised by Isaiah in today’s First Reading.

    His baptism marks the start of a new world, a new creation. As Isaiah prophesied, the Spirit descends upon Jesus like a dove—as the Spirit hovered over the face of the deep in the beginning (see Genesis 1:2).

    A King to Behold: Scott Hahn Reflects on the Feast of the Epiphany

    A King to Behold: Scott Hahn Reflects on the Feast of the Epiphany

    An “epiphany” is an appearance. In today’s readings, with their rising stars, splendorous lights, and mysteries revealed, the face of the child born on Christmas day appears.

    Herod, in today’s Gospel, asks the chief priests and scribes where the Messiah is to be born.

Sweet and short

Great insight that is powerful without being too lengthy. I love how Dr Hahn ties the Sunday Readings together which helps me be better prepared to receive the Word on Sunday.
