Bible Readings (Page 696)
Trinity 21—Proper 24
First Reading: Job38:1-7, (34-41) The Lord answers Job out of the whirlwind, challenging him with unanswerable questions. God asks Job who has control over nature, both animals and earth.
Second Reading: Hebrews 5:1-10 The high priests offered sacrifices for their own sin and for others. They must be called by God to be a high priest; Christ was called by God. Jesus learned obedience through suffering. He is a High Priest in the order of Melchizedek.
Third Reading: Mark 10:35-45 James and John ask to sit next to Jesus in glory. Jesus says they must drink the cup He drank and be baptised as He was. The other disciples complain. Jesus instructs them: to be greatest, a person must be a servant to all.
