Lee Gatiss expounds the lectionary readings for the first Sunday of Epiphany (Year A) which are Isaiah 42:1-9, Acts 10:34-43, and Matthew 3:13-17.

The readings this week proclaim the glorious truth that the Spirit-anointed saviour has come, to bring God’s forgiveness to all the nations of his world.
