Scripture Notes – Sunday 27th February 2022

Building your house on rock

According to the geographer and traveller, Pausanias, the Temple of Apollo, the home of the Delphic oracle, had three teachings on display: “know yourself”, “nothing to excess” and “certainty leads to insanity.” The first of these is not a bad summary of this Sunday’s conclusion of the Sermon on the Plain in Luke.


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.

The Readings

Some Inspiration

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)
