Jesus, Word of God,
you call disciples of every kind,
amongst them the rigid and cantankerous;
we thank you for Jerome’s amazing work,
which opened your word
for everyone to read.
New Testament Reading - Learned in the Scriptures
14But you must keep on believing the things you have been taught. You know they are true, for you know that you can trust those of us who have taught you. 15You know how, when you were a small child, you were taught the holy Scriptures; and it is these that make you wise to accept God’s salvation by trusting in Christ Jesus. 16The whole Biblea was given to us by inspiration from God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives; it straightens us out and helps us do what is right. 17It is God’s way of making us well prepared at every point, fully equipped to do good to everyone.. . . . . 2 Timothy 3:14-17
- Literally, “Every Scripture.”
