SIXTH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST
Gospel (Mt 9,1-8): At that time, Jesus entered a boat, made the crossing, and came into his own town. 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.” At that, some of the scribes said to themselves, “This man is blaspheming.” Jesus knew what they were thinking, and said, “Why do you harbor evil thoughts? Which is easier, to say, ‘Your sins are forgiven,’ or to say, ‘Rise and walk’? 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.” He rose and went home. When the crowds saw this they were struck with awe and glorified God who had given such authority to human beings.
6-а НЕДІЛЯ ПО ЗІСЛАННІ СВ. ДУХА
Євангелія (Мт 9,1-8): Того часу, сівши у човен, Ісус переплив назад і прибув у своє місто. І от принесено до нього розслабленого, що лежав на ношах. Побачивши їхню віру, Ісус сказав розслабленому: “Бадьорися сину, твої гріхи відпускаються.” Та тут деякі з книжників заговорили між собою: “Він хулить.” Ісус, знавши їхні думки, каже: “Чого лукаве думаєте в серцях ваших? Що легше сказати: Твої гріхи відпущені, - чи сказати: Встань і ходи! Та щоб знали, що Син Чоловічий має владу на землі гріхи відпускати,” - каже розслабленому: “Встань, візьми твої ноші та й іди до свого дому.” Встав той і пішов до свого дому. Народ же, бачивши це, настрахався і славив Бога, що дав таку владу людям.
