Tuesday, May 16: “Appreciate the Differences II”


Luke 11: 2-4: “When you pray, say: ‘Father, hallowed be Your Name. Your Kingdom come. Give us each day our daily bread. And forgive us our sins, for we ourselves also forgive everyone who is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation.’” Even the normally verbose St. Luke could have his terse moments. His version of the Lord’s Prayer, when stripped of interpolations, comes in at three verses, thirty-seven words. St. Matthew? Five verses, containing about seventy words. Why are they not the same? Different writers, different contexts. And perhaps each quoted Jesus exactly as He spoke the prayer–again, in different situations to a different group of people. Even Jesus adapted to the moment.
