Easter Monday


Collect (LSB)

O God, in the paschal feast You restore all creation. Continue to send Your heavenly gifts upon Your people that they may walk in perfect freedom and receive eternal life; through Jesus Christ, Your Son, our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Sprit, one God, now and forever. Amen.

Old Testament (LSB): Exodus 15:1-18


 1Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the LORD, and spake, saying, I will sing unto the LORD, for he hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.

 2The LORD is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father's God, and I will exalt him.

 3The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name.

 4Pharaoh's chariots and his host hath he cast into the sea: his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red sea.

 5The depths have covered them: they sank into the bottom as a stone.

 6Thy right hand, O LORD, is become glorious in power: thy right hand, O LORD, hath dashed in pieces the enemy.

 7And in the greatness of thine excellency thou hast overthrown them that rose up against thee: thou sentest forth thy wrath, which consumed them as stubble.

 8And with the blast of thy nostrils the waters were gathered together, the floods stood upright as an heap, and the depths were congealed in the heart of the sea.

 9The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; my lust shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.

 10Thou didst blow with thy wind, the sea covered them: they sank as lead in the mighty waters.

 11Who is like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?

 12Thou stretchedst out thy right hand, the earth swallowed them.

 13Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people which thou hast redeemed: thou hast guided them in thy strength unto thy holy habitation.

 14The people shall hear, and be afraid: sorrow shall take hold on the inhabitants of Palestina.

 15Then the dukes of Edom shall be amazed; the mighty men of Moab, trembling shall take hold upon them; all the inhabitants of Canaan shall melt away.

 16Fear and dread shall fall upon them; by the greatness of thine arm they shall be as still as a stone; till thy people pass over, O LORD, till the people pass over, which thou hast purchased.

 17Thou shalt bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of thine inheritance, in the place, O LORD, which thou hast made for thee to dwell in, in the Sanctuary, O LORD, which thy hands have established.

 18The LORD shall reign for ever and ever.



Epistle: Acts 10:34-41


 34Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:

 35But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.

 36The word which God sent unto the children of Israel, preaching peace by Jesus Christ: (he is Lord of all:)

 37That word, I say, ye know, which was published throughout all Judaea, and began from Galilee, after the baptism which John preached;

 38How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.

 39And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree:

 40Him God raised up the third day, and shewed him openly;

 41Not to all the people, but unto witnesses chosen before God, even to us, who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead.



Gospel: Luke 24:13-35


 13And, behold, two of them went that same day to a village called Emmaus, which was from Jerusalem about threescore furlongs.

 14And they talked together of all these things which had happened.

 15And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them.

 16But their eyes were holden that they should not know him.

 17And he said unto them, What manner of communications are these that ye have one to another, as ye walk, and are sad?

 18And the one of them, whose name was Cleopas, answering said unto him, Art thou only a stranger in Jerusalem, and hast not known the things which are come to pass there in these days?

 19And he said unto them, What things? And they said unto him, Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, which was a prophet mighty in deed and word before God and all the people:

 20And how the chief priests and our rulers delivered him to be condemned to death, and have crucified him.

 21But we trusted that it had been he which should have redeemed Israel: and beside all this, to day is the third day since these things were done.

 22Yea, and certain women also of our company made us astonished, which were early at the sepulchre;

 23And when they found not his body, they came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, which said that he was alive.

 24And certain of them which were with us went to the sepulchre, and found it even so as the women had said: but him they saw not.

 25Then he said unto them, O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken:

 26Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?

 27And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.

 28And they drew nigh unto the village, whither they went: and he made as though he would have gone further.

 29But they constrained him, saying, Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent. And he went in to tarry with them.

 30And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took bread, and blessed it, and brake, and gave to them.

 31And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight.

 32And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?

 33And they rose up the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven gathered together, and them that were with them,

 34Saying, The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon.

 35And they told what things were done in the way, and how he was known of them in breaking of bread.



First Reading: Ex. 15:1-18


 1Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the LORD, and spake, saying, I will sing unto the LORD, for he hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.

 2The LORD is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father's God, and I will exalt him.

 3The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name.

 4Pharaoh's chariots and his host hath he cast into the sea: his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red sea.

 5The depths have covered them: they sank into the bottom as a stone.

 6Thy right hand, O LORD, is become glorious in power: thy right hand, O LORD, hath dashed in pieces the enemy.

 7And in the greatness of thine excellency thou hast overthrown them that rose up against thee: thou sentest forth thy wrath, which consumed them as stubble.

 8And with the blast of thy nostrils the waters were gathered together, the floods stood upright as an heap, and the depths were congealed in the heart of the sea.

 9The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; my lust shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them.

 10Thou didst blow with thy wind, the sea covered them: they sank as lead in the mighty waters.

 11Who is like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?

 12Thou stretchedst out thy right hand, the earth swallowed them.

 13Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people which thou hast redeemed: thou hast guided them in thy strength unto thy holy habitation.

 14The people shall hear, and be afraid: sorrow shall take hold on the inhabitants of Palestina.

 15Then the dukes of Edom shall be amazed; the mighty men of Moab, trembling shall take hold upon them; all the inhabitants of Canaan shall melt away.

 16Fear and dread shall fall upon them; by the greatness of thine arm they shall be as still as a stone; till thy people pass over, O LORD, till the people pass over, which thou hast purchased.

 17Thou shalt bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of thine inheritance, in the place, O LORD, which thou hast made for thee to dwell in, in the Sanctuary, O LORD, which thy hands have established.

 18The LORD shall reign for ever and ever.



Second Reading: Heb. 9:1-28


 1Then verily the first covenant had also ordinances of divine service, and a worldly sanctuary.

 2For there was a tabernacle made; the first, wherein was the candlestick, and the table, and the shewbread; which is called the sanctuary.

 3And after the second veil, the tabernacle which is called the Holiest of all;

 4Which had the golden censer, and the ark of the covenant overlaid round about with gold, wherein was the golden pot that had manna, and Aaron's rod that budded, and the tables of the covenant;

 5And over it the cherubims of glory shadowing the mercyseat; of which we cannot now speak particularly.

 6Now when these things were thus ordained, the priests went always into the first tabernacle, accomplishing the service of God.

 7But into the second went the high priest alone once every year, not without blood, which he offered for himself, and for the errors of the people:

 8The Holy Ghost this signifying, that the way into the holiest of all was not yet made manifest, while as the first tabernacle was yet standing:

 9Which was a figure for the time then present, in which were offered both gifts and sacrifices, that could not make him that did the service perfect, as pertaining to the conscience;

 10Which stood only in meats and drinks, and divers washings, and carnal ordinances, imposed on them until the time of reformation.

 11But Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building;

 12Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us.

 13For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh:

 14How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?

 15And for this cause he is the mediator of the new testament, that by means of death, for the redemption of the transgressions that were under the first testament, they which are called might receive the promise of eternal inheritance.

 16For where a testament is, there must also of necessity be the death of the testator.

 17For a testament is of force after men are dead: otherwise it is of no strength at all while the testator liveth.

 18Whereupon neither the first testament was dedicated without blood.

 19For when Moses had spoken every precept to all the people according to the law, he took the blood of calves and of goats, with water, and scarlet wool, and hyssop, and sprinkled both the book, and all the people,

 20Saying, This is the blood of the testament which God hath enjoined unto you.

 21Moreover he sprinkled with blood both the tabernacle, and all the vessels of the ministry.

 22And almost all things are by the law purged with blood; and without shedding of blood is no remission.

 23It was therefore necessary that the patterns of things in the heavens should be purified with these; but the heavenly things themselves with better sacrifices than these.

 24For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:

 25Nor yet that he should offer himself often, as the high priest entereth into the holy place every year with blood of others;

 26For then must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world: but now once in the end of the world hath he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself.

 27And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

 28So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.
