Year C is not just the ‘Year of Luke’, a survey of Jesus’ good news to the poor, release to the captives, recovery of sight to the blind or good news not just for Israel but also the Gentile world. In tandem with our journey through Luke, the Old Testament texts draw us into the stories of Israel’s painful confrontation with its failure to be the people God intended. These stories of human failure and its consequences, heard mostly from the prophets Isaiah, Amos, Hosea, Jeremiah, at the same time also reveal God’s faithfulness.
During the weeks following Pentecost the Epistle readings are dominated by portions from Paul’s letters to the Galatian and Colossian churches and to Timothy.
