Collect of the Day

The Second Sunday in Lent.

The Collect

ALMIGHTY God, who seest that we have no power of ourselves to help ourselves; Keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls; that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Collect from the First Day of Lent is to be read every day in Lent after the Collect appointed for the Day.

Easter Sunday Gaff: PCUSA Pastor Goofs the Sermon

I visited Murrysville First Presbyterian Church on Easter Sunday, April 8th, 2012 in Murrysville, Pennsylvania.  The pastor made a gaff on John 19:33 and said that "It is finished," was from a Hebrew word, "Tetelesthai."  However, the word is from the Greek New Testament and the root word is "teleo" for "finish" or "complete."  The parsing is 3rd person, perfect passive indicative of "teleo".  Here's the analysis information from the analysis window in Bibleworks 9.0:

from τελέω

[GING] τελέω
τελέω1. bring to an end, finish, complete Mt 7:28; 11:1; 13:53; Lk 2:39; 2 Ti 4:7; Rv 11:7. Come to an end Rv 20:3, 5, 7. Find consummation 2 Cor 12:9.—2. carry out, accomplish, keep Lk 18:31; Ac 13:29; Ro 2:27; Gal 5:16; Js 2:8.—3. pay Mt 17:24; Ro 13:6. [pg 198]

--  Glory be to the Father, and to the Son : and to the Holy Ghost; As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be : world without end. Amen.
