Kommunicating Kerygma (ke·ryg·ma)

29th Sunday in Ordinary Time

October 22, 2017
Matthew 22:15-21

Background

In last week’s gospel Matthew recounts Jesus telling the parable of a king who prepared a wedding banquet for his son. As the parable unfolds, the king invites the good and the bad from the streets. When the guests are finally assembled, one is found without proper attire. The parable sets up the closing verse, “Many are invited, but few are chosen.” (Matt 22:14) The text for this Sunday’s gospel follows directly after last week’s text.

Twenty-ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time

October 22, 2017 — Twenty-ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time

From the moment that Isaiah reminds us in the First Reading that God says, “I have called you by your name… though you knew me not,” until Jesus closes the Gospel with “Then repay to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and to God what belongs to God,” we are reminded how much a part of our lives the Lord is, or should be. All the readings on this Twenty-ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time point to this important relationship to God.

God speaks through Isaiah and the other prophets. The prophets did more than foretell events in the future. They also served as interpreters for God; thus, they did a combination of preaching as well as foretelling. In this particular passage of Holy Scripture God is indeed speaking through Isaiah to the people, to us. Therefore, when God says to us “I have called you by name,” it does foretell the idea that the Lord knew us in the womb, by name. And, of course, we are called.

At another point in the Book of Isaiah, God says, “I have called you by name; you are mine.” We might say that we are each marked by God, each identified, and with that identification and relationship come expectations. Twice God declares in this reading, “I am the Lord and there is no other.” That is something on which we need to reflect and which we need to take to heart. God needs to be at the center of our lives.
