Saturday in the Eighteenth Week after Pentecost
The Lesson of the Epistle of the Holy Apostle Paul to the Corinthians.
I Corinthians §162 (15:39-45).
Brethren: All flesh is not the same flesh: but one is the flesh of men, another of beasts, another of birds, another of fishes. And there are bodies celestial, and bodies terrestrial: but, one is the glory of the celestial, and another of the terrestrial. One is the glory of the sun, another the glory of the moon, and another the glory of the stars. For star differeth from star in glory. So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption, it shall rise in incorruption. It is sown in dishonour, it shall rise in glory. It is sown in weakness, it shall rise in power. It is sown a natural body, it shall rise a spiritual body. If there be a natural body, there is also a spiritual body, as it is written: The first man Adam was made into a living soul; the last Adam into a quickening spirit.
The Lesson of the Holy Gospel according to Saint Luke.
Saint Luke §15 (4:31-36).
At that time: Jesus went down into Capharnaum, a city of Galilee, and there He taught them on the sabbath days. And they were astonished at His doctrine: for His speech was with power. And in the synagogue there was a man who had an unclean devil, and he cried out with a loud voice, saying: Let us alone, what have we to do with Thee, Jesus of Nazareth? Art Thou come to destroy us? I know thee who Thou art, the Holy One of God. And Jesus rebuked him, saying: Hold thy peace, and go out of him. And when the devil had thrown him into the midst, he went out of him, and hurt him not at all. And there came fear upon all, and they talked among themselves, saying: What word is this, for with authority and power He commandeth the unclean spirits, and they go out?
