1 Easter Latin Names

2 ROGATE – SIXTH SUNDAY OF EASTER “Ask”

3 Progression of the Easter Season The season emerges slowly and systematically, in a way consistent with real human emotions. First we experience awe and shock. Then humbly recognize our dependence on God by reference to newborn infants. We observe that the Resurrection is a global event and that his mercy is universal. Then we shout. We sing. And then we are driven to share the news with the world.

4 Introduction Isaiah 48:20b Rogate means “ask.” Let’s look at the translations Notice anything about the different translations? Declare (KJV, ESV, HCSB) vs announce (NIV’s); utter (KJV) vs send out (NIV’s, ESV) vs let go (HCSB)

5 Background Another name for this Sunday is Vocem Jucunditatis, “the voice of joy.” This Sunday does not get its name from the introit, but rather from the original gospel assigned for the day, John 16:23b-30, where Jesus said, “Ask and it will given to you…” Look at the quote

6 John 16:23-30 This is the old appointed gospel. Work began on our current set of lessons in the 1950’s and 60’s. The Catholics released their new lessons in 1970; Lutherans a few years after that.

7 John 14:23-29 The gospel is part of Jesus’ words to his disciples on Maundy Thursday. Can you see any connection between this introit and the appointed gospel?

8 John 14: Jesus replied, “If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching. My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him. 24 He who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me. 25 “All this I have spoken while still with you. 26 But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.

9 John 14: Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid. 28 “You heard me say, ‘I am going away and I am coming back to you.’ If you loved me, you would be glad that I am going to the Father, for the Father is greater than I. 29 I have told you now before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe.

10 John 14:23-29 The gospel is part of Jesus’ words to his disciples on Maundy Thursday. Can you see any connection between this introit and the appointed gospel? What the Introit says to do, Jesus was going to give the Holy Spirit to the apostles to do that

11 Background Starting with last week, the gospels start to turn our focus from Easter to Pentecost. Isaiah lived about 700 BC. His ministry spanned from years. He saw the fall of the northern kingdom and prophesied the fall of the southern kingdom. He prophesied about the exile into Babylon and the return from there. He also is called the Fifth Evangelist because he has so many prophecies about the coming Messiah. Isaiah is the most quoted book in the New Testament behind Psalms.

12 Isaiah 48:20 Where is Babylon? Modern Iraq

13 Babylon

14 Isaiah 48:20 Remember how the Israelites ended up in Babylon? Taken captivity by Babylonians in 586 BC.; first deportation 605 Remember how long the Israelites were in Babylon? About 70 years; BC

15 Isaiah 48:20 What are they now told to do? Rejoice; tell it to the nations Why would there be joy in leaving Babylon? They were returning home to Israel

16 Isaiah 48:20 What were they to announce “to the ends of the earth”? God has redeemed his servant Jacob What does it mean to “redeem”? Buy back; win back

17 Isaiah 48:20 Who is “his servant, Jacob”? God’s chosen people How is this Babylonian captivity and redemption a picture of Easter? Jesus redeemed us from the slavery of sin

18 Conclusion Do you see any connection between this introit and the Easter season? What Jesus has done for us in Easter, we are to now declare to the nations See how this gets us ready for Pentecost?

19 Progression of the Easter Season The season emerges slowly and systematically, in a way consistent with real human emotions. First we experience awe and shock. Then humbly recognize our dependence on God by reference to newborn infants. We observe that the Resurrection is a global event and that his mercy is universal. Then we shout. We sing. And then we are driven to share the news with the world.
