1st Sunday of Advent
November 29, 2015
Luke 21:25-28, 34-36
This First Sunday of Advent begins a new liturgical year. The gospel texts will primarily be taken from Luke. Scripture scholars generally agree that Luke drew upon Mark’s gospel. However, while Mark wrote before the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem, Luke wrote about 15 years after the Romans razed it. Luke has to separate what has already happened from what is yet to come. The fall of the temple was disheartening for the Jews. Luke points to the much more vital event to come, which will be signaled by cosmic disturbances. These signs will signal the coming of Christ as “Judge of the World.”
