Readings for November 13, 2016



FIRST READING:  Luke 24:13-35

13Now on that same day two of them were going to a village called Emmaus, about
seven miles from Jerusalem, 14and talking with each other about all these things that

had happened.  15While they were talking and discussing, Jesus himself came near and went with them, 16but their eyes were kept from recognizing him.  17And he said to

them, ‘What are you discussing with each other while you walk along?’ They stood still, looking sad.  18Then one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answered him, ‘Are you the only stranger in Jerusalem who does not know the things that have taken place

there in these days?’  19He asked them, ‘What things?’ They replied, ‘The things about
Jesus of Nazareth, who was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the
people, 20and how our chief priests and leaders handed him over to be condemned to
death and crucified him.  21But we had hoped that he was the one to redeem Israel.

Yes, and besides all this, it is now the third day since these things took place.
22Moreover, some women of our group astounded us. They were at the tomb early this
morning, 23and when they did not find his body there, they came back and told us that
they had indeed seen a vision of angels who said that he was alive.  24Some of those
who were with us went to the tomb and found it just as the women had said; but they
did not see him.’  25Then he said to them, ‘Oh, how foolish you are, and how slow of
heart to believe all that the prophets have declared!  26Was it not necessary that the
Messiah should suffer these things and then enter into his glory?’  27Then beginning
with Moses and all the prophets, he interpreted to them the things about himself in all
the scriptures. 28As they came near the village to which they were going, he walked
ahead as if he were going on.  29But they urged him strongly, saying, ‘Stay with us,
because it is almost evening and the day is now nearly over.’ So he went in to stay with
them.  30When he was at the table with them, he took bread, blessed and broke it, and
gave it to them.  31Then their eyes were opened, and they recognized him; and he
vanished from their sight.  32They said to each other, ‘Were not our hearts burning
within us while he was talking to us on the road, while he was opening the scriptures to
us?’  33That same hour they got up and returned to Jerusalem; and they found the
eleven and their companions gathered together.  34They were saying, ‘The Lord has
risen indeed, and he has appeared to Simon!’  35Then they told what had happened on
the road, and how he had been made known to them in the breaking of the bread.





P:  The holy gospel according to St. John, the 21st chapter. C: Glory to you, O Lord.


GOSPEL:  John 21:1-14

1After these things Jesus showed himself again to the disciples by the Sea of Tiberias; and he showed himself in this way.  2Gathered there together were Simon Peter,

Thomas called the Twin, Nathanael of Cana in Galilee, the sons of Zebedee, and two others of his disciples.3Simon Peter said to them, ‘I am going fishing.’ They said to him, ‘We will go with you.’ They went out and got into the boat, but that night they caught

nothing. 4Just after daybreak, Jesus stood on the beach; but the disciples did not know
that it was Jesus. 5Jesus said to them, ‘Children, you have no fish, have you?’ They
answered him, ‘No.’  6He said to them, ‘Cast the net to the right side of the boat, and
you will find some.’ So they cast it, and now they were not able to haul it in because

there were so many fish.  7That disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, ‘It is the Lord!’ When Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put on some clothes, for he was

naked, and jumped into the lake.  8But the other disciples came in the boat, dragging
the net full of fish, for they were not far from the land, only about a hundred yards off.
9When they had gone ashore, they saw a charcoal fire there, with fish on it, and bread.
10Jesus said to them, ‘Bring some of the fish that you have just caught.’  11So Simon
Peter went aboard and hauled the net ashore, full of large fish, a hundred and fifty-

three of them; and though there were so many, the net was not torn.  12Jesus said to them, ‘Come and have breakfast.’ Now none of the disciples dared to ask him, ‘Who are you?’ because they knew it was the Lord.  13Jesus came and took the bread and gave it to them, and did the same with the fish.  14This was now the third time that Jesus appeared to the disciples after he was raised from the dead.

P:  The Gospel of the Lord.
C:  Praise to you, O Christ.
