AbigailPortia Hi All
locksley69 Wow even Abigail is here!
AbigailPortia Hi Dash
AbigailPortia Hi Loccksley
AbigailPortia oops Locksley*
locksley69 nite femme
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"
AbigailPortia yes nice
dashace50 Locks lol
locksley69 I make few mistakes when reading ... but every so often ...
alaskakimberlee We have all been there Sean
locksley69 I dare say
AbigailPortia all fall short of the glory of God.....(apostle Paul )
AbigailPortia st Paul*
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.
locksley69 Turns out I'd prepared with the reading for the right Sunday but a different cycle
alaskakimberlee I can see how that could happen.
AbigailPortia how do you remedy this in that situation?
locksley69 The answer, when you miss a line or word, is to go back and read it correctly. DO NOT SAY "EXCUSE ME"
locksley69 Never make a reference to the error .. just continue
AbigailPortia I see
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
locksley69 I really enjoy the readings from Acts of the Apostles after Easter, when Peter's speech from Pentecost is spread over two Sundays
alaskakimberlee That is a beautiful time Sean
locksley69 Yes, it is. I get passionate cuz I think just reading that speech does it a disservice
locksley69 It's the first public proclamation of the Resurrection ... it deserves to be passionate
AbigailPortia could I ask and it may a bit doglegged from this.....
locksley69 lol okay
AbigailPortia I read that Luke was a companion of Paul...…….
AbigailPortia and he was a Gentile
locksley69 yea, and ?
AbigailPortia and then they were working to bring the gospel to the Gentiles in their missionary journeys?
locksley69 he was also a doctor
locksley69 sure Abi
AbigailPortia and what exactly does Gentile mean here in this era
alaskakimberlee Non Jew
locksley69 it means "not a Jew"
locksley69 In other words, Abi, There are Jews and there is the rest of the world
locksley69 Angel Baby!!
angel303ba Locks Hello
angel303ba (((((() nana))))) hi
angel303ba (((((( dash))) hi
angel303ba ((((( locks ))))
angel303ba Kim hi
angel303ba Abigail. Hi
alaskakimberlee Good evening Angel
AbigailPortia Hi Angel
locksley69 Why were you asking, Abi?
AbigailPortia I apologize in advance for my lack of knowledge on some of these things but I am confused sometimes
locksley69 no need to apologize, Abi. Honest ?s deserve honest answers .. Not everyone is a bible expert
locksley69 not everyone is even conversant in the Bible
alaskakimberlee You can say that again
dashace50 Hi Angel
AbigailPortia In todays times....my understanding is Judaism and Christianity is different?
locksley69 Christianity began as a sect of Judaism, Abi. Everyone involved with Jesus was Jewish.
AbigailPortia so those not born from jewish blood were considered Gentiles?
AbigailPortia in the bible*
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
locksley69 And Christians began seeing themselves as calling to the whole world and not to just the Jews
locksley69 Acts 10 and 11 and 15 explain a lot of this, Abi
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
locksley69 Claudius didn't know the difference so he just expelled both groups as being "Jews"
AbigailPortia will take me a little time to read these, but I will and hopefully it will clear up the confusion
locksley69 okay Abi ... just remember, Gentiles are everyone who is not a Jew
AbigailPortia I will thanks
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
AbigailPortia he was a miracle worker yes?
