If you compare the Gospels you will find some differences in emphasis and even in the order of events. The Gospels were written to record important truths and evidences of Christ’s identity as the Messiah and as God the Son. Certain details are recalled in some Gospel accounts yet not others. Of course the Gospels are not detailed biographies. It is possible that St Matthew (in the reading today) was recording a well-known story, the details of which were well known. The Apostle does, however, offer his own insights on the narrative. The healing of the paralysed man is reported also in St Mark’s Gospel (chapter 2) and St Luke’s…

Today we are linked to the Transfiguration of Christ when we receive the body and blood of Christ. As each of us comes to communion, we receive the same person, Christ, whose Transfiguration in northern Palestine in the early years of the first century was a sign of His coming resurrection and ascension. The loving Jewish teacher Jesus was revealed in the Transfiguration as the Cosmic Christ whose Light shines in the whole of the universe. It is this transfigured Christ who lives today and invites us—this small group of His followers—like another small group of His followers—Peter, James and John—to be transformed by His Transfiguration.…

As it is written in the prophets, “Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, who shall prepare thy way; the voice of one crying in the wilderness: Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.”
John the baptizer appeared in the wilderness, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. And there went out to him all the country of Judea, and all the people of Jerusalem; and they were baptized by him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins.

This is the beginning of the good news about Our Lord Jesus Christ, God’s Son. Long ago, some very Godly men told about the time when Jesus would come to earth. These men were called prophets because they were very close to God, and He told them about things that were going to happen, and later on those things really did happen! Here is what one of them wrote down: “God says, ‘I will send someone to get people ready. He will live in the wilderness. He will tell people to get ready to meet and follow God.’ ”

At that time, when Jesus heard that John had been arrested, he withdrew into Galilee; and leaving Nazareth he went and dwelt in Capernaum by the sea, in the territory of Zebulun and Naphtali, that what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah might be fulfilled,
“The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, toward the sea, across the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles—the people who sat in darkness have seen a great light, and for those who sat in the region and shadow of death light has dawned.”
From that time Jesus began to preach, saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
