Posted by Lee Gatiss, 1 Nov 2017

This Sunday's readings tell us that there is a huge difference between ministers who proclaim the pure unvarnished word of God, and those who preach only what is good for their own livelihood.

The lectionary readings for the 4th Sunday before Advent (Year A) are Micah 3:5-12, 1 Thessalonians 2:9-13, and Matthew 24:1-14. In this short video, Lee Gatiss expounds those readings for us today.

Revd Dr Lee Gatiss is the Director of Church Society and a weekly columnist in the Church of England Newspaper.
