In this episode, we consider the readings for Proper 24, Year A:
Exodus 33:12-23 & Psalm 99; Isaiah 45:1-7 & Psalm 96:1-9 (10-13); 1 Thessalonians 1:1-10; Matthew 22:15-22.
We consider Moses' prayer to the Lord, Isaiah's prophecy regarding Cyrus, Paul's commendation of the Thessalonians, and Jesus' response to entrapping questions about paying taxes.
