Thursday of Jubilate (Easter 4)

First Reading: Lev. 17:1-16

The Place of Sacrifice
 1And the LORD spoke to Moses, saying, 2"Speak to Aaron and his sons and to all the people of Israel and say to them, This is the thing that the LORD has commanded. 3If any one of the house of Israel(A) kills an ox or a lamb or a goat in the camp, or kills it outside the camp, 4and(B) does not bring it to the entrance of the tent of meeting to offer it as a gift to the LORD in front of the tabernacle of the LORD, bloodguilt shall be imputed to that man. He has shed blood, and that man(C) shall be cut off from among his people. 5This is to the end that the people of Israel may bring their sacrifices that they sacrifice(D) in the open field, that they may bring them to the LORD, to the priest at the entrance of the tent of meeting, and sacrifice them(E) as sacrifices of peace offerings to the LORD. 6And the priest shall(F) throw the blood on the altar of the LORD at the entrance of the tent of meeting and burn the fat(G) for a pleasing aroma to the LORD. 7So they shall no more sacrifice their sacrifices to goat demons, after whom they(H) whore. This shall be a statute forever for them throughout their generations.

 8"And you shall say to them, Any one of the house of Israel, or of the strangers who sojourn among them, who(I) offers a burnt offering or sacrifice 9and(J) does not bring it to the entrance of the tent of meeting to offer it to the LORD,(K) that man shall be cut off from his people.

Laws Against Eating Blood
 10"If any one of the house of Israel or of the strangers who sojourn among them(L) eats any blood, I will(M) set my face against that person who eats blood and will cut him off from among his people. 11(N) For the life of the flesh is in the blood, and I have given it for you on the altar(O) to make atonement for your souls,(P) for it is the blood that makes atonement by the life. 12Therefore I have said to the people of Israel, No person among you shall eat blood, neither shall any stranger who sojourns among you eat blood.

 13"Any one also of the people of Israel, or of the strangers who sojourn among them, who takes in hunting any beast or bird that may be eaten shall(Q) pour out its blood and(R) cover it with earth. 14For the life of every creature[a] is its(S) blood: its blood is its life.[b] Therefore I have said to the people of Israel, You shall not eat the blood of any creature, for the life of every creature is its blood. Whoever eats it shall be cut off. 15(T) And every person who eats what dies of itself or what is torn by beasts,(U) whether he is a native or a sojourner,(V) shall wash his clothes and(W) bathe himself in water and be unclean until the evening; then he shall be clean. 16But if he does not wash them or bathe his flesh,(X) he shall bear his iniquity."

Second Reading: Lk. 10:23-42

 23Then turning to the disciples he said privately, (A) "Blessed are the eyes that see what you see! 24For I tell you(B) that many prophets and kings desired to see what you see, and did not see it, and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it."

The Parable of the Good Samaritan
 25(C) And behold, a(D) lawyer stood up to(E) put him to the test, saying, "Teacher, what shall I do to(F) inherit eternal life?" 26He said to him, "What is written in the Law? How do you read it?" 27And he answered,(G) "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and(H) your neighbor as yourself." 28And he said to him, "You have answered correctly;(I) do this, and you will live."

 29But he,(J) desiring to justify himself, said to Jesus, "And who is my neighbor?" 30Jesus replied, "A man(K) was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and he fell among robbers, who stripped him and beat him and departed, leaving him half dead. 31Now by chance a(L) priest was going down that road, and when he saw him he passed by on the other side. 32So likewise(M) a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. 33But a(N) Samaritan, as he journeyed, came to where he was, and when he saw him, he had compassion. 34He went to him and(O) bound up his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he set him on his own animal and brought him to an inn and took care of him. 35And the next day he took out two(P) denarii[a] and gave them to the innkeeper, saying, 'Take care of him, and whatever more you spend, I will repay you when I come back.' 36Which of these three, do you think, proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell among the robbers?" 37He said, "The one who showed him mercy." And Jesus said to him, "You go, and do likewise."

Martha and Mary
 38Now as they went on their way, Jesus[b] entered a village. And a woman named(Q) Martha(R) welcomed him into her house. 39And she had a sister called(S) Mary, who(T) sat at the Lord’s feet and listened to his teaching. 40But Martha was distracted with much serving. And she went up to him and said, "Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me." 41But the Lord answered her, "Martha, Martha, you are(U) anxious and troubled about many things, 42but one thing is necessary.[c] Mary has chosen(V) the good portion, which will not be taken away from her."
