The First Reading is the story of the martyrdom of a mother and her 7 sons by the Greeks for refusing to eat pork, representative of they’re obeying Torah. They do so, in the hope of an afterlife, a late development in the thought process of the OT. The Gospel for today is the Lucan variant of what we heard this past Sunday: the parable of the talents. Read this version from Luke and remark on the differences. The overall theme is the same but there are differences.
