Daily Gospel Reading for January 13, 2023 – Friday in the First Week of Ordinary Time Bible Verse

The 13th of January, 2023 is Friday in the First Week of Ordinary Time. The Bible scriptures for the holy mass readings for this day came from the Year 2023 of Liturgical Calendar.

Reading 1: HEB 4:1-5, 11

The first reading from The Letter to the Hebrews.

Let’s fear therefore, lest perhaps anyone of you should seem to have come short of a promise of entering into his rest.

For indeed we have had good news preached to us, even as they also did, but the word they heard didn’t profit them, because it wasn’t mixed with faith by those who heard.

For we who have believed do enter into that rest, even as he has said, “As I swore in my wrath, they will not enter into my rest;” although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.

For he has said this somewhere about the seventh day, “God rested on the seventh day from all his works;” and in this place again, “They will not enter into my rest.”

Let’s therefore give diligence to enter into that rest, lest anyone fall after the same example of disobedience.

Responsorial Psalm: PS 78:3 and 4BC, 6C-7, 8

Response: Do not forget God’s deeds.

Which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us.

Telling to the generation to come the praises of Yahweh, his strength, and his wondrous deeds that he has done.

R: Do not forget God’s deeds.

Who should arise and tell their children, that they might set their hope in God, and not forget God’s deeds, but keep his commandments.

R: Do not forget God’s deeds.

And might not be as their fathers-a stubborn and rebellious generation, a generation that didn’t make their hearts loyal, whose spirit was not steadfast with God.

R: Do not forget God’s deeds.

Gospel of the Day: MK 2:1-12

From the gospel verse according to Mark.

When he entered again into Capernaum after some days, it was heard that he was at home.

Immediately many were gathered together, so that there was no more room, not even around the door; and he spoke the word to them.

Four people came, carrying a paralytic to him.

When they could not come near to him for the crowd, they removed the roof where he was. When they had broken it up, they let down the mat that the paralytic was lying on.

Jesus, seeing their faith, said to the paralytic, “Son, your sins are forgiven you.”

But there were some of the scribes sitting there and reasoning in their hearts, “Why does this man speak blasphemies like that? Who can forgive sins but God alone?”

Immediately Jesus, perceiving in his spirit that they so reasoned within themselves, said to them, “Why do you reason these things in your hearts?

Which is easier, to tell the paralytic, ‘Your sins are forgiven;’ or to say, ‘Arise, and take up your bed, and walk?’

But that you may know that the Son of Man has authority on earth to forgive sins”-he said to the paralytic-“I tell you, arise, take up your mat, and go to your house.”

He arose, and immediately took up the mat and went out in front of them all, so that they were all amazed and glorified God, saying, “We never saw anything like this!”
