The Gospel Notes for the Fourth Sunday of Easter (Jubilate) from the Lutheran Service Book’s One-Year Lectionary is now available. You may download the Color PDF, the Black and White PDF, the Bi-Fold Color PDF, the Bi-Fold Black and White PDF, the Legal Half-Page PDF, or the Legal Black and White PDF.
The bi-fold version is a “booklet form” that folds and inserts nicely inside a standard bulletin. The standard version can be printed double-sided on a 8½ x 11″ sheet, and folded for distribution through bulletins, or put on the narthex table for distribution.
The Legal Half-Page is designed for those parishes who already have the readings in their bulletins, this lets you print these notes on a legal (8½ x 14″) sheet, cut it in half, and insert it in your bulletins. It removes the left column from the other formats, and makes it so one double-sided sheet can be inserted.
Additional one-year lectionary Gospel Notes can be found here. If you would like to receive an email each week, please fill out the registration form here. This educational resource is provided by Steadfast in the Parish.
The Fourth Sunday of Easter — Jubilate
by: Rev. Roberto E. Rojas, Jr.
Collect of the Day:
Almighty God, You show those in error the light of Your truth so that they may return to the way of righteousness. Grant faithfulness to all who are admitted into the fellowship of Christ’s Church that they may avoid whatever is contrary to their confession and follow all such things as are pleasing to You; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
Psalm 66:1-3 — How awesome are Your deeds
Psalm 147:1-11 (antiphon: v. 5) — Great is our Lord
Old Testament Reading:
Isaiah 40:25-31 — The greatness of God
1 Peter 2:11-20 — Submission to authority
Matt. 28:27b; John 20:26a, c — Alleluia. He sent redemption to his people. Alleluia. Was it not necessary that the Christ should suffer these things and enter into His glory? Alleluia
