1st Reading – Genesis 22:1B-19

1B God tested Abraham, and he said to him, “Abraham, Abraham.” And he answered, “Here I am.”

2 He said to him: “Take your only begotten son Isaac, whom you love, and go into the land of vision. And there you shall offer him as a holocaust upon one of the mountains, which I will show to you.”

3 And so Abraham, getting up in the night, harnessed his donkey, taking with him two youths, and his son Isaac. And when he had cut wood for the holocaust, he traveled toward the place, as God had instructed him.

4 Then, on the third day, lifting up his eyes, he saw the place at a distance.

5 And he said to his servants: “Wait here with the donkey. I and the boy will hurry further ahead to that place. After we have worshipped, will return to you.”

6 He also took the wood for the holocaust, and he imposed it upon his son Isaac. And he himself carried in his hands fire and a sword. And as the two continued on together,

7 Isaac said to his father, “My father.” And he answered, “What do you want, son?” “Behold,” he said, “fire and wood. Where is the victim for the holocaust?”

8 But Abraham said, “God himself will provide the victim for the holocaust, my son.” Thus they continued on together.

9 And they came to the place that God had shown to him. There he built an altar, and he set the wood in order upon it. And when he had bound his son Isaac, he laid him on the altar upon the pile of wood.

10 And he reached out his hand and took hold of the sword, in order to sacrifice his son.

11 And behold, an Angel of the Lord called out from heaven, saying, “Abraham, Abraham.” And he answered, “Here I am.”

12 And he said to him, “Do not extend your hand over the boy, and do not do anything to him. Now I know that you fear God, since you have not spared your only begotten son for my sake.”

13 Abraham lifted up his eyes, and he saw behind his back a ram among the thorns, caught by the horns, which he took and offered as a holocaust, instead of his son.

14 And he called the name of that place: ‘The Lord Sees.’ Thus, even to this day, it is said: ‘On the mountain, the Lord will see.’

15 Then the Angel of the Lord called out to Abraham a second time from heaven, saying:

16 “By my own self, I have sworn, says the Lord. Because you have done this thing, and have not spared your only begotten son for my sake,

17 I will bless you, and I will multiply your offspring like the stars of heaven, and like the sand which is on the seashore. Your offspring will possess the gates of their enemies.

18 And in your offspring, all the nations of the earth will be blessed, because you obeyed my voice.”

19 Abraham returned to his servants, and they went to Beersheba together, and he lived there.

Gospel – Matthew 9:1-8

1 After entering a boat, Jesus made the crossing and came into his own town.

2 And there, people brought to him a paralytic lying on a stretcher. When Jesus saw their faith, he said to the paralytic, “Courage, child, your sins are forgiven.”

3 At that, some of the scribes said to themselves, “This man is blaspheming.”

4 Jesus knew what they were thinking, and said, Why do you harbour evil thoughts?

5 Which is easier, to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Rise and walk’?

6 But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins”– he then said to the paralytic, “Rise, pick up your stretcher and go home.”

7 He rose and went home.

8 When the crowds saw this they were struck with awe and glorified God who had given such authority to men.
