The third and final part of the Sermon on the Plain offers powerful parables. The lectionary excerpt stops at v.45. However, I would suggest adding the remaining verses — all the parables here were important to Luke and are very carefully laid out. A good text to go with this passage would be James 1:21-25.
For inspiration, we turn to the second reading. Handel’s setting of 1 Corinthians 15 is highly uplifting and faithful to the text as well. (No visuals really but the singing is simply wonderful: Les Arts Florrisants under William Christie)
