Reading (Hebrews 1:1-6)
 In days gone by, God spoke in many and varied ways to the Fathers through the prophets.  But now, in the acharit-hayamim, he has spoken to us through his Son, to whom he has given ownership of everything and through whom he created the universe.
 This Son is the radiance of the Sh’khinah, the very expression of God’s essence, upholding all that exists by his powerful word; and after he had, through himself, made purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of HaG’dulah BaM’romim.
 So he has become much better than angels, and the name God has given him is superior to theirs.  For to which of the angels did God ever say, “You are my Son; today I have become your Father”?
Also, God never said of any angel, “I will be his Father, and he will be my Son.” And again, when God brings his Firstborn into the world, he says, “Let all God’s angels worship him.”
Gospel (Mark 1: 14-20)
 After Yochanan had been arrested, Yeshua came into the Galil proclaiming the Good News from God:  “The time has come, God’s Kingdom is near! Turn to God from your sins and believe the Good News!”
 As he walked beside Lake Kinneret, he saw Shim‘on and Andrew, Shim‘on’s brother, casting a net into the lake; for they were fishermen.  Yeshua said to them, “Come, follow me, and I will make you into fishers for men!”
 At once they left their nets and followed him.  Going on a little farther, he saw Ya‘akov Ben-Zavdai and Yochanan, his brother, in their boat, repairing their nets. Immediately he called them, and they left their father Zavdai in the boat with the hired men and went after Yeshua.
