First Reading – Jeremiah 29:1, 4-7
29:1 What an archeological discovery it would be to find this actual letter. What is the meaning of “remaining elders”? Had some elders taken into exile escaped, died, been killed?
66:1 What is a joyful noise? Does “all the earth” refer to only people? Only to living beings? To the fullness of creation?
2:8 Does “remember” mean only do not forget? This is a pretty bare bones gospel.
17:11 Geographically speaking. Where in relation to Jerusalem is the region between Samaria and Galilee. Why does it matter?
