BCP - The Sunday Next Before Easter

The Collect

Almighty and everlasting God, which, of thy tender love toward man, hast sent our Savior Jesus Christ to take upon him our flesh, and to suffer death upon the cross, that all mankind should follow the example of his great humility: Mercifully grant, that we both follow the example of his patience, and be made partakers of his resurrection; through the same Jesus Christ our Lord.

The Epistle [Phil. 2

Let the same mind be in you, that was also in Christ Jesu: which when he was in the shape of God, thought it no [sic] robbery to be equal with God. Nevertheless he made himself of no reputation, taking on him the shape of a servant, and became like unto man, and was found in his apparel, as a man. He humbled himself, and became obedient to the death, even to the death of the cross. Wherefore God hath also exalted him on high, and given him a name which is above all names, that in the name of Jesus, every knee should bow, both of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth, and that all tongues should confess, that Jesus Christ is the Lord, unto the praise of God the Father.

For a sermon by Martin Luther on this text, please go to http://www.lectionarycentral.com/palm/LutherEpistle.html

The Gospel [Matt. 26

The entire chapter is too long to conveniently present in this format. Lectionary Central had no listing for a Martin Luther sermon on this occasion.
