The Gospel reading today is not the easiest one to deal with.
Jesus has gone, with his disciples, into Gentile territory. But he was not there to focus on the people of the place. Still, he needed to rest, and so he went into a house, hoping for some quiet time. We don’t know whose house it was.
I am an author whose work you probably know pretty well - I wrote the Gospel that you call “the Gospel of Luke”, AND I wrote an early history of the church that you call “The Acts of the Apostles”, or often just “the book of Acts”.
You will notice in the book of Acts that some of the time I write to you about what some of the other disciples did, that I heard about from them, and sometimes I write about things I saw and participated in myself.
