First Reading (Isaiah 42:1-4, 6-7)

[1] “Here is my servant, whom I support, my chosen one, in whom I take pleasure. I have put my Spirit on him; he will bring justice to the Goyim. [2] He will not cry or shout; no one will hear his voice in the streets.

[3] He will not snap off a broken reed or snuff out a smoldering wick. He will bring forth justice according to truth; [4] he will not weaken or be crushed until he has established justice on the earth, and the coastlands wait for his Torah.”

[6] “I, Adonai, called you righteously, I took hold of you by the hand, I shaped you and made you a covenant for the people, to be a light for the Goyim, [7] so that you can open blind eyes, free the prisoners from confinement, those living in darkness from the dungeon.

Second Reading (Acts 10:34-38)

[34] Then Kefa addressed them: “I now understand that God does not play favorites, [35] but that whoever fears him and does what is right is acceptable to him, no matter what people he belongs to.

[36]“Here is the message that he sent to the sons of Isra’el announcing shalom through Yeshua the Messiah, who is Lord of everything.

[37] You know what has been going on throughout Y’hudah, starting from the Galil after the immersion that Yochanan proclaimed; [38] how God anointed Yeshua from Natzeret with the Ruach HaKodesh and with power; how Yeshua went about doing good and healing all the people oppressed by the Adversary, because God was with him.

Gospel (Mark 1: 7-11)

[7] He proclaimed: “After me is coming someone who is more powerful than I — I’m not worthy even to bend down and untie his sandals. [8] I have immersed you in water, but he will immerse you in the Ruach HaKodesh.”

[9] Shortly thereafter, Yeshua came from Natzeret in the Galil and was immersed in the Yarden by Yochanan. [10] Immediately upon coming up out of the water, he saw heaven torn open and the Spirit descending upon him like a dove; [11] then a voice came from heaven, “You are my Son, whom I love; I am well pleased with you.”
