About the readings . . . . .
The long bloody path to kingship ended, with savvy political wisdom David has chosen a new capital city, Jerusalem, to unite the fractious tribes. To unite them religiously, he now brings to it the Ark of the Covenant — the sign of God’s presence and power. (first reading)

It is God’s cosmic reign, now manifested in Jesus, which evokes Paul’s ecstatic praise and thanksgiving as he begins his letter to the Ephesians. God’s reign has become a reality in his people. (second reading)

Mark’s Gospel gives us the story of the dissolute Herod’s brutal silencing of John the Forerunner. The event begins Jesus’ mission, taking up John’s proclamation of God’s righteousness, as Herod understood, and trembled.

Next Week’s Readings (9 Pentecost):
2 Samuel 7:1-14a; Psalm 89:20-37
Ephesians 2:11-22; Mark 6:30-34, 53-56
