Like a mature tree the lectionary’s roots are deep in the history of the church and its branches reach up to the heavens.

Interested in learning more about the Lectionary & how to read it?

The goal of the Lectionary Project  is to serve as a resource for those interested in learning more about the lectionary, its schedule, history and how to intelligently and devotionally read the lectionary. The focus of this project will be on a commentary that examines the readings for that day as a whole. Special attention is given to exploring the connections between the different texts read that week, how they relate to each other, and their connection to the liturgical year.

For those of you who are wondering what a commentary is, a commentary is a resource that is designed to explain the biblical text. These can take various forms - from very academic and technical commentaries that look the original languages and textual issues and require a seminary degree or higher to really understand. Then there are others that are more devotional in nature. One type of commentary is not better than the other. They are like tools. You want to use the right tool for the right job.

“Whenever you see, in an official lectionary, the command to omit two or three verses, you can normally be sure that they contain words of judgment. Unless, of course, they are about sex.”
