The

Lectionary

Project

‍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 ‍four ‍readings ‍for ‍aparticular ‍Sunday. ‍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.

‍What ‍is ‍a ‍commentary? ‍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 ‍requires ‍knowledge ‍of ‍the ‍original ‍languages ‍to ‍commentaries ‍that ‍are ‍written ‍for ‍devotional ‍reading ‍by ‍anyone. ‍One ‍type ‍of ‍commentary ‍is ‍not ‍better ‍than ‍the ‍others. ‍The ‍goal ‍of ‍this ‍commentary ‍is ‍to ‍contain ‍a ‍mix ‍that ‍will ‍include ‍some ‍of ‍the ‍more ‍cutting ‍edge ‍type ‍of ‍information ‍but ‍also ‍accessible ‍to ‍someone ‍who ‍just ‍wants ‍to ‍learn ‍a ‍little ‍more ‍about ‍the ‍readings ‍for ‍that ‍Sunday. ‍

“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.”

the Resurrection, and the Mission of the Church
