Acts 1:15-17, 21-26

A reading from the Acts of the Apostles.

In those days Peter stood up among the believers
(together the crowd numbered about one hundred twenty persons).
He said, 

“Friends, the scripture had to be fulfilled, 
which the Holy Spirit through David foretold concerning Judas, 
who became a guide for those who arrested Jesus— 

for he was numbered among us 
and was allotted his share in this ministry.”

So one of the men who have accompanied us 
during all the time that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us, 

beginning from the baptism of John 
until the day when he was taken up from us—
one of these must become a witness with us to his resurrection.” 

So they proposed two, 
Joseph called Barsabbas, who was also known as Justus, and Matthias. 

Then they prayed and said, 
“Lord, you know everyone’s heart. 
Show us which one of these two you have chosen 

to take the place in this ministry and apostleship 
from which Judas turned aside to go to his own place.” 

And they cast lots for them, 
and the lot fell on Matthias; 
and he was added to the eleven apostles.

John 15:26-16.4

Hear the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ According to John.

“When the Advocate comes, 
whom I will send to you from the Father, 
the Spirit of truth who comes from the Father, 
he will testify on my behalf. 

You also are to testify because you have been with me from the beginning.

 “I have said these things to you to keep you from stumbling. 

They will put you out of the synagogues. 
Indeed, an hour is coming when those who kill you 
will think that by doing so they are offering worship to God. 

And they will do this because they have not known the Father or me. 

But I have said these things to you 
so that when their hour comes you may remember that I told you about them.
