Historical Introductions to Today's Readings:

bibleandcandle1st Reading: The once-nomadic Hebrews used to carry with them the ark of God, which we call The kind of Ark of the Covenant. It was an ornate chest, containing the stone tablets inscribed with their covenant with God. When they settled down and became prosperous, their king proposed to build a permanent shrine for the Ark. God responds to the king's plans.

2nd Reading: St. Paul summarizes and concludes his letter to the Romans. He emphasizes that God's plans were only incompletely revealed until now.

Gospel: St. Luke's original audience were pagans, who would become Christians and had never been Jews. For them, Luke grounds the Gospel in the Jewish heritage of Jesus. His introduction foreshadows much of what they already knew about the adult mission of Jesus.
