Luke 7:11-17 - The Gospel Lectionary Passage for Sunday, June 6, 2010

This is my own translation of the lectionary gospel lesson for Sunday. Please make any comments concerning the passage you want. Together, let's discuss the Word of God:

**********

11And it happened, soon after, [Jesus] went into a town called Nain, and his disciples and a great crowd went with him. 12But as he was near the gate of the town, behold a dead man was being carried out, the only son of his mother and she was a widow. And a considerable crowd from the town was with her. 13And when the Lord saw her, he was moved to pity for her, and he said to her, “Don’t weep.” 14And after he went in, he touched the bier, and those who were bearing him stood, and he said, “Young man, I say to you, arise.” 15And the dead man sat up and started to speak. And [Jesus] gave him to his mother. 16And many people were taken with fear. And they glorified God, saying, “A great prophet has arisen among us,” and “God has visited his people.” 17And this word went out in the whole of Judea concerning him and in all the surrounding district.
