In this episode, we discuss the readings for the second Sunday after the Epiphany, Year A in the Lectionary cycle: John 1:29-42; 1 Corinthians 1:1-9; Psalm 40:1-12; Isaiah 49:1-7.

We consider Jesus' invitation to "Come and see," the context of the letter to the Corinth, the moving imagery and pathos of the Psalm, and the prophetic pronouncement of Christ's kingship.

Our outro music is an original song by our friend Dcn. Jeremiah Webster, a poet and professor whose giftedness is rivaled by his humbleness. You can find his published works, including After So Many Fires, with a quick Google.
