  1. 1. Wednesday, March 31, 2010 | Lent Old Testament Isaiah 50:4–9a Psalm Psalm 70 New Testament Hebrews 12:1–3 Gospel John 13:21–32 Old TestamentIsaiah 50:4–9a 50:4 The sovereign Lord has given me the capacity to be his spokesman, so that I know how to help the weary. He wakes me up every morning; he makes me alert so I can listen attentively as disciples do. 50:5 The sovereign Lord has spoken to me clearly; I have not rebelled, I have not turned back. 50:6 I offered my back to those who attacked, my jaws to those who tore out my beard; I did not hide my face from insults and spitting. 50:7 But the sovereign Lord helps me, so I am not humiliated. For that reason I am steadfastly resolved; I know I will not be put to shame. 50:8 The one who vindicates me is close by. Who dares to argue with me? Let us confront each other! Who is my accuser? Let him challenge me!PsalmPsalm 70 For the music director; by David; written to get God’s attention. O God, please be willing to rescue me! 70:1 O Lord, hurry and help me! May those who are trying to take my life 70:2 be embarrassed and ashamed! May those who want to harm me be turned back and ashamed! May those who say, “Aha! Aha!” 70:3 be driven back and disgraced! May all those who seek you be happy and rejoice in you! 70:4 May those who love to experience your deliverance say continually, “May God be praised!” I am oppressed and needy! 70:5 O God, hurry to me! You are my helper and my deliverer! O Lord, do not delay! New TestamentHebrews 12:1–3
  2. 2. Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, we must get rid of every12:1weight and the sin that clings so closely, and run with endurance the race set out for us, keeping our 12:2eyes fixed on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of our faith. For the joy set out for him he endured thecross, disregarding its shame, and has taken his seat at the right hand of the throne of God. Think of 12:3him who endured such opposition against himself by sinners, so that you may not grow weary in yoursouls and give up.GospelJohn 13:21–32 When he had said these things, Jesus was greatly distressed in spirit, and testified, “I tell you the13:21solemn truth, one of you will betray me.” The disciples began to look at one another, worried and 13:22perplexed to know which of them he was talking about. One of his disciples, the one Jesus loved, 13:23was at the table to the right of Jesus in a place of honor. So Simon Peter gestured to this disciple to 13:24ask Jesus who it was he was referring to. Then the disciple whom Jesus loved leaned back against 13:25Jesus’ chest and asked him, “Lord, who is it?” Jesus replied, “It is the one to whom I will give this 13:26piece of bread after I have dipped it in the dish.” Then he dipped the piece of bread in the dish and gaveit to Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son. And after Judas took the piece of bread, Satan entered into him. 13:27Jesus said to him, “What you are about to do, do quickly.” (Now none of those present at the table 13:28understood why Jesus said this to Judas. Some thought that, because Judas had the money box, Jesus 13:29was telling him to buy whatever they needed for the feast, or to give something to the poor.) Judas 13:30took the piece of bread and went out immediately. (Now it was night.) When Judas had gone out, Jesus said, “Now the Son of Man is glorified, and God is glorified in him.13:31 If God is glorified in him, God will also glorify him in himself, and he will glorify him right away.13:32
