“I Thought The Giant Was Dead”


Scripture ReadingsOld Testament/Hebrew Bible = TaNaKNew Testament


Exodus 1:12b-14

…And the Egyptians were in dread of the people of Israel.


So they ruthlessly made the people of Israel work as slaves


and made their lives bitter with hard service, in mortar and brick, and in all kinds of work in the field. In all their work they ruthlessly made them work as slaves.


Isaiah 14:12-17


“How you are fallen from heaven,

O Day Star, son of Dawn!

How you are cut down to the ground,

you who laid the nations low!


You said in your heart,

‘I will ascend to heaven;

above the stars of God

I will set my throne on high;

I will sit on the mount of assembly

in the far reaches of the north;


I will ascend above the heights of the clouds;

I will make myself like the Most High.’


But you are brought down to



to the far reaches of the pit.


Those who see you will stare at you

and ponder over you:

‘Is this the man who made the earth tremble,

who shook kingdoms,


who made the world like a desert

and overthrew its cities,

who did not let his prisoners go home?’


Ecclesiastes 1:9-10

What has been is what will be,

and what has been done is what will be

done, and there is nothing new under

the sun.


Is there a thing of which it is said,

“See, this is new”? It has been already

in the ages before us.


Mark 4:35 – 5:10


On that day, when evening had come, he said to them, “Let us go across to the other side.”


And leaving the crowd, they took him with them in the boat, just as he was. And other boats were with him.


And a great windstorm arose, and the waves were breaking into the boat, so that the boat was already filling.


But he was in the stern, asleep on the cushion. And they woke him and said to him, “Teacher, do you not care that we are perishing?”


And he awoke and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, “Peace! Be still!” And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.


He said to them, “Why are you so afraid? Have you still no faith?”


And they were filled with great fear and said to one another, “Who then is this, that even the wind and the sea obey him?”



Mark 4:35 – 5:10

They came to the other side of the sea, to the country of the



And when Jesus had stepped out of the boat, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit.

He lived among the tombs. And no one could bind him anymore, not even with a chain,

for he had often been bound with shackles and chains, but he wrenched the chains apart, and he broke the shackles in pieces. No one had the strength to subdue him.

Night and day among the tombs and on the mountains he was always crying out and cutting himself with stones.

And when he saw Jesus from afar, he ran and fell down before him.

And crying out with a loud voice, he said, “What have you to do with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? I adjure you by God, do not torment me.”

For he was saying to him, “Come out of the man, you unclean spirit!”

And Jesus asked him, “What is your name?” He replied, “My name is Legion, for we are many.”


And he begged him earnestly not to send them out of the country.



Ephesians 6:10-13


Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might.


Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil.


For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.


Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm.
