Fritz Eichenberg – “The Christ of the Breadlines” 1950
Sunday, January 27, 2012
For some thirty years, Jesus lives quietly among friends and relatives. Sabbath after Sabbath he is present in the synagogue as the Torah readings cycle yearly, along with the companion readings from the Prophets. Now it is time for an “Epiphany at Nazareth.”
It is late summer, or early autumn, toward the end of the Jewish year. The passage from Isaiah brings hope and anticipation as the year draws to a close, stirring hope in the people for the Messiah who was to come.
This is the setting as Jesus stands before his people to proclaim the reading. Receive Jesus with joy who everyday is fulfilling the Scriptures in your hearing.
