Weekly Lessons

From the Revised Common Lectionary

These readings are taken directly from the source files provided by the publishers of the Revised Common Lectionary. Sometimes alternate readings are listed on any given Sunday and on occasion, substitutions are made to this list for what is read in church at any particular service. If you are a reader or cantor this week, the bulletin will confirm what readings are assigned, so please use that as your guide.

The Revised Common Lectionary also has a daily reading calendar. If you like to follow the Lectionary for your bible readings, we offer that here for your discernment and enjoyment.

What is the Revised Common Lectionary?

The Revised Common Lectionary is a three-year cycle of weekly lections used to varying degrees by the vast majority of mainline Protestant churches in Canada and the United States. The RCL is built around the seasons of the Church Year, and includes four lections for each Sunday, as well as additional readings for major feast days. During most of the year, the lections are: a reading from the Hebrew Bible, a Psalm, a reading from the Epistles, and a Gospel reading. During the season of Easter, the Hebrew Bible lection is usually replaced with one from the Acts of the Apostles. The lections from the Hebrew Bible are sometimes chosen from the Apocrypha.

The gospel readings for each year come from one of the synoptic gospels according to the following pattern:

Year A – Matthew
Year B – Mark
Year C – Luke
