AbigailPortia Hi Loccksley

AbigailPortia oops Locksley*
flag
locksley69 nite femme
flag
locksley69 I was a reader at the Vigil Mass on Sat .. I proclaimed, "A reading from the first letter of St Paul to the Romans.. Corinthinans"
flag
dashace50 Locks lol
flag
locksley69 I make few mistakes when reading ... but every so often ...
flag
alaskakimberlee We have all been there Sean
flag
locksley69 I dare say
flag
AbigailPortia all fall short of the glory of God.....(apostle Paul )
flag
locksley69 about 10 years ago I was in the middle of reading the epistle and it was completely strange ... I stopped and asked from the ambo, "Am I giving the right reading?" And people from the congregation reading along told me I was.
flag
locksley69 Turns out I'd prepared with the reading for the right Sunday but a different cycle
flag
alaskakimberlee I can see how that could happen.
flag
AbigailPortia how do you remedy this in that situation?
flag
locksley69 The answer, when you miss a line or word, is to go back and read it correctly. DO NOT SAY "EXCUSE ME"
flag
locksley69 Never make a reference to the error .. just continue
flag
locksley69 But that one time . when I found myself reading something that was completely foreign to what I'd prepared for ... I just cdn't contain myself, "Am I giving the right reading?" LOL
flag
locksley69 I really enjoy the readings from Acts of the Apostles after Easter, when Peter's speech from Pentecost is spread over two Sundays
flag
alaskakimberlee That is a beautiful time Sean
flag
locksley69 Yes, it is. I get passionate cuz I think just reading that speech does it a disservice
flag
locksley69 It's the first public proclamation of the Resurrection ... it deserves to be passionate
flag
AbigailPortia could I ask and it may a bit doglegged from this.....
flag
locksley69 lol okay
flag
AbigailPortia I read that Luke was a companion of Paul...…….
flag
AbigailPortia and he was a Gentile
flag
locksley69 yea, and ?
flag
AbigailPortia and then they were working to bring the gospel to the Gentiles in their missionary journeys?
flag
locksley69 he was also a doctor
flag
locksley69 sure Abi
flag
AbigailPortia and what exactly does Gentile mean here in this era
flag
locksley69 it means "not a Jew"
flag
locksley69 In other words, Abi, There are Jews and there is the rest of the world
flag
locksley69 Angel Baby!!

angel303ba ((((( locks ))))
flag
angel303ba Abigail. Hi
flag
alaskakimberlee Good evening Angel
flag
locksley69 Why were you asking, Abi?
flag
AbigailPortia I apologize in advance for my lack of knowledge on some of these things but I am confused sometimes
flag
locksley69 no need to apologize, Abi. Honest ?s deserve honest answers .. Not everyone is a bible expert
flag
locksley69 not everyone is even conversant in the Bible
flag
alaskakimberlee You can say that again
flag
dashace50 Hi Angel
flag
AbigailPortia In todays times....my understanding is Judaism and Christianity is different?
flag
locksley69 Christianity began as a sect of Judaism, Abi. Everyone involved with Jesus was Jewish.
flag
AbigailPortia so those not born from jewish blood were considered Gentiles?
flag
AbigailPortia in the bible*
flag
locksley69 Everyone whose mother was not Jewish is a Gentile, even now. Eventually, very early on, due to a need for the Christian element to call for all Jews to accept Jesus as the foretold Messiah, animosity arose and there was a lot of conflict
flag
locksley69 And Christians began seeing themselves as calling to the whole world and not to just the Jews
flag
locksley69 Acts 10 and 11 and 15 explain a lot of this, Abi
flag
locksley69 Acts 18 tells how the Jews were expelled from Rome due to the conflicts in synagogues on the Sabbath with Christians by the Emperor Claudius
flag
locksley69 Claudius didn't know the difference so he just expelled both groups as being "Jews"
flag
AbigailPortia will take me a little time to read these, but I will and hopefully it will clear up the confusion
flag
locksley69 okay Abi ... just remember, Gentiles are everyone who is not a Jew
flag
AbigailPortia I will thanks
flag
locksley69 The Gospel reading just a couple of Sundays ago had something about Elijah bringing the son of a Gentile widow back to life, even tho there were other widows in Israel
flag
AbigailPortia he was a miracle worker yes?
