St. John 4: 11-14 “The woman said to Him, “Sir, you do not even have a bucket and the cistern is deep; where then can you get this living water? Are you greater than our father Jacob, who gave us the cistern and drank from it himself with his children and flock?” Jesus answered and said to her, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirst again; but whoever drinks the water I shall give will never thirst; the water I shall give will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life (Cf. Genesis 2:6).”
JOSEPH AND HIS BROTHERS
Hebrews 11: 21-22 “By faith Jacob, when dying, blessed each of the sons of Joseph and ‘bowed in worship, leaning on the top of his staff.’ By faith Joseph, near the end of his life, spoke of the Exodus of Israelites and gave instruction about his bones.”
St. Luke 20: 37-38 “That the dead will rise even Moses made known in the passage about the bush, when he called “Lord” the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob; and He is not God of the dead, but of the living, for to Him all are alive.”
Hebrews 3: 1-6 “Therefore, holy ‘brothers,’ sharing in a heavenly calling, reflect on Jesus, the apostle and high priest of our confession, who was faithful to the one who appointed him, just as Moses was “faithful in [all] his house.” But He is worthy of more “glory” than Moses, as the founder of a house has more “honor” than the house itself…We are his house, if [only] we hold fast to our confidence and pride in our hope.”
St. Matthew 2: 13-15 “When they had departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, “Rise, take the child and His mother, flee to Egypt, and stay there until I tell you. Herod is going to search for the child to destroy him.” Joseph rose and took the child and his mother by night and departed for Egypt. He stayed there until the death of Herod, that what the Lord said through the prophet might be fulfilled, “Out of Egypt I called by son.”
Hosea 11:1 “When Israel was a child I loved him, out of Egypt I called him.”

St. Matthew 22: 41-45 “While the Pharisees were gather together, Jesus questioned them, saying, “What is your opinion about the Messiah? Whose son is he? They replied, David’s.” He said to them, “How, then, does David, inspired by the Spirit, call Him “Lord,” saying: “The Lord said to my Lord, “Sit at my right hand until I place your enemies under your feet”? If David Calls Him “Lord,” how can He be his son?”
St. Matthew 20: 29-34As they left Jericho, a great crowd followed Him. Two blind men were sitting by the roadside, and when they heard that Jesus was passing by, they cried out, “[Lord,] son of David, have pity on us! The crowd warned them to be silent, but they called out all the more, “Lord, Son of David, have pity on us!” Jesus stopped and called them and said, “What do you want me to do for you?” They answered Him, “Lord, let our eyes be opened.” Moved with pity, Jesus touched their eyes. Immediately they received their sight, and followed Him.
St. Matthew 12: 42 “At the Judgment the queen of the south will arise with this generation and condemn it, because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and there is something greater than Solomon here.”
