About Today Readings

Micah 6:1–4, 6–8. Psalm 49(50):5–6, 8–9, 16–17, 21, 23. Matthew 12:38–42.

To the upright I will show the saving power of God—Psalm 49(50):5–6, 8–9, 16–17, 21, 23.

‘This is what the Lord asks of you—to act justly, to love tenderly and to walk humbly with your God.’

As with the Prophet Micah, Jesus had been paving a path into authentic living.

So how frustrating it must have been to be faced with the arrogant blindness of his critics! ‘Teacher, we wish to see a sign from you.’ They failed to see all he was already doing among the people.

Jesus’ personality and teaching were powerful signs. Yet some were not satisfied and demanded more.

He promised them another iteration of the sign of Jonah: his resurrection from the dead.
