Term Three 2019

John 1: 1 – 5

In the beginning, the Word existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God.

He existed in the beginning with God.

Through him all things were made, and apart from him nothing was made that has been made.

In him was life, and that life brought light to humanity.

And the light shines on in the darkness, and the darkness has never put it out.

Matthew 19: 16 – 23

Just then a man came up to Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what good deed should I do to have eternal life?”

Jesus asked him, “Why ask me about what is good? There is only one who is good. If you want to get into that life, you must keep the commandments.”

The young man asked him, “Which ones?” Jesus said, “‘You must not murder, you must not commit adultery, you must not steal, you must not give false testimony, honor your father and mother,’ and ‘you must love your neighbor as yourself.'”

The young man told him, “I have kept all of these. What do I still lack?”

Jesus told him, “If you want to be perfect, go and sell what you own and give the money to the destitute, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come back and follow me.”

But when the young man heard this statement he went away sad, because he had many possessions.

Then Jesus told his disciples, “I tell you with certainty, it will be hard for a rich person to get into the kingdom from heaven.
