THIRD SUNDAY OF LENT Year B

Second Reading 1 Corinthians 1:22-25

A reading from the first letter of Paul to the Corinthians.

For while the Jews call for miracles and the Greeks look for wisdom, here we are preaching a Messiah nailed to a cross.  To the Jews this is an obstacle that they cannot get over, and to the Greeks it is madness – but to those who have been called, whether they are Jews or Greeks,

Christ is the power and the wisdom of God.  For God’s foolishness is wiser than human wisdom, and God’s weakness is stronger than human strength.

The Word of God recorded in the first letter of Paul to the Corinthians.
