Jesus preaching in the temple

Dear all,

We have new Zoom arrangement. You will notice a new Zoom number, which is tied to a St. Andrew’s account rather than my personal one. (We also got a reduced rate because St. Andrew’s is a charitable organization; thank God for small blessings. St.  Andrew’s is inviting you, as usual ,to a worship service scheduled at the usual time on zoom.  Last week John began his telling of Jesus’ ministry with a great, well lubricated, wedding feast at the village of Cana.  Jesus is presented as the Messianic bridegroom. This week, Luke  recounts a visit to Jesus’ home town of Nazareth, which starts off  pleasantly enough. The home town boy is asked to read the scriptures and say a few words  by way of commentary. People were impressed with how he spoke and how he comported himself. Who would have guessed that this is how Joseph and Mary’s boy would have turned out etc.  etc?

But things go south and by the end of the sermon, the congregation tries to kill the preacher.
