August 2020 Bible readings

Listen now

Here are the August 2020 Bible readings. Some of us have been able to physically worship in church the last few weeks, whilst others are still shielding and meeting on-line. Whichever camp you fall in, please take the opportunity to take a look at the readings and to reflect on what they might be saying to you.

The readings

In the August 2020 Bible readings we have Jesus making a little food stretch a long way then taking a short-cut across a lake. There’s also Elijah having a moment in a cave and Moses coming across some smouldering shrubbery.

If you don’t have access to a Bible then please follow this link to the Vanderbilt Divinity Library. There may be the odd reading that doesn’t match what we’ll have in church but normally we’re pretty close!

Matthew 14:22-33

Immediately he made the disciples get into the boat and go on ahead to the other side, while he dismissed the crowds. And after he had dismissed the crowds, he went up the mountain by himself to pray.

When evening came, he was there alone, but by this time the boat, battered by the waves, was far from the land, for the wind was against them. And early in the morning he came walking toward them on the sea.

But when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were terrified, saying, “It is a ghost!” And they cried out in fear. But immediately Jesus spoke to them and said, “Take heart, it is I; do not be afraid.”

Peter answered him, “Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.” He said, “Come.” So Peter got out of the boat, started walking on the water, and came toward Jesus.

But when he noticed the strong wind, he became frightened, and beginning to sink, he cried out, “Lord, save me!” Jesus immediately reached out his hand and caught him, saying to him, “You of little faith, why did you doubt?”

When they got into the boat, the wind ceased. And those in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.”
