Amazing Coincidence - and Reaching out to Rabbi Cahn

The Amazing Coincidence, reported by him:

The Parasha - Rabbi Jonathan Cahn

My comments:

Are you for the RC custom of Parashas?

A Missal has more than one part. One is the "ordo missae" which concerns the parts that come in every single mass. Then you have more than one part which can state the "proper" - Temporale, being Sundays, Several fast days, Easter, Pentecost, not on fixed dates, and also Christmas to Epiphany Octave, on fixed dates. Sanctorale, concerned with fixed dates for the saints' feasts. Communia - concerned with several masses where the sanctorale just says "see the commune for bishop martyrs with comrades in martyrdom" or things like that.

For each proper, whichever it comes from, it has:

  • Epistle reading (often NT epistles, sometimes an OT text, like Stabunt iusti for commune martyrum)
  • a praise between epistle and gospel
  • Gospel reading
  • three more prayers - all of them directed to God, including on saints' days - that also go with the proper.

So, unlike Pentecostals, Catholic faithful actually still do have parashas.

"every section has a name" - also the case with Catholic readings.
Stabunt iusti is the name of Wisdom 5:1-5.
I think Quasimodo (there is a Quasimodo Sunday, as you may know from "Notre Dame de Paris" by Victor Hugo) is the reading that now starts Sicut modo geniti infantes - 1 Peter 2:2)

Deuteronomy 28 ... you are aware that the salvation of Old Testament Israel is here a conditional salvation?
Matthew 28 - the salvation of the New Testament Church is unconditional and therefore also eternal or permanent (which also goes to show that most OSAS proof text prove the Church is collectively OSAS, not that individual real believers are so).

What does that suggest to you about the Church history of 1300 AD? 300 AD? 800 AD?
