  ================================

     In year C we follow the Gospel of Luke (See Notes Page for background) 

Sunday 1

The Temptation of Jesus in the desert.

Led to the empty quiet space to reflect, Jesus finds himself
confronted by the devil,and rebuffs him.

The episode is accompanied by accounts of the Faith the

Hebrew people have in their God and the faith that Christians have in Christ.


Sunday 2

The Transfiguration.

Peter, James and John witness Jesus displayed in glory.

Jesus bridges the gulf between the human and the divine,
identified in the accounts of God's covenant with Abram

and the transformation which Jesus brings to our existence.


Sunday
3

The Need for Conversion: Encounter with God.


Jesus reminds his listeners that tragic and sudden deaths are not
(necessarily) a result of the guilt of those who die.

Even the fruitless fig tree may provide fruit if cared for.

But we do need to be sure that we are converted.
Paul reminds the early Christians that they should learn from the
experience of the followers of Moses. They had to trust in God.


Sunday 4

The Prodigal Son (The Merciful Father?)

Despite his waywardness and disregard for his father's house
the feckless son is welcomed home by his father, when he takes steps to return.

Jesus is telling us that the unbounded love of the father is just like the unconditional
love that His heavenly Father has for us.

Three new situations are recounted.

Passover is first celebrated in the new land(no more manna),
the early Christians reconciled in Christ have become a new creation
and the son who was lost (estranged) has been found (reconciled).


Sunday 5

The Woman Taken in Adultery

As the crowd bays for a stoning, Jesus shows mercy.
The crowd challenged by Jesus to cast the first stone if they are sinless,
melts away. Jesus does not condemn the woman, but says sin no more.
Jesus tells us that we too must be willing to be merciful in our dealings
.

The new approach from condemnation to mercy are echoed in  
Isaiah where the way of the Lord brings new life watering the desert

and Paul who himself has put aside old ways for the sake of his new life in Christ
