Frequently asked questions about the lectionary Why are there two sets of readings? There are two distinct lectionaries that are provided through the Presbyterian Church U. Web site. Users of this lectionary may choose to read all the lessons in one sitting, or may distribute the readings throughout the day as a part of the practice of daily prayer a common pattern is Old Testament in the morning, Epistle at noon and Gospel in the evening.
This lectionary provides Scripture readings for proclamation in public worship, following the Sundays, festivals and seasons of the Christian year or liturgical calendar. Four scripture passages are given for each Sunday and festival: a the First Reading, usually from the Old Testament, but replaced by a reading from Acts during the season of Easter; b a Psalm or canticle, intended not as a separate reading, but as a response ideally, a musical response to the First Reading; c the Second Reading, an Epistle or other New Testament writing; and d the Gospel Reading, from Matthew, Mark, Luke or John.
Why does this website sometimes have Old Testament and Psalms readings that differ from other websites and resources? The semicontinuous track allows churches to hear multi-week, sequential readings from important books and narrative sections of scripture for instance, Genesis and Exodus in Year A; 1 and 2 Samuel and Job in Year B; and 1 and 2 Kings and Jeremiah in Year C.
The complementary track selects Old Testament readings that are thematically tied to the New Testament readings for the day. The Psalms readings differ in these tracks because the psalm is intended as a specific response to the Old Testament lesson. For this reason, only the semicontinuous Old Testament readings are provided on this website. The complementary readings more common in Catholic, Anglican, and Lutheran tradition are readily available through other web sites, including the Consultation on Common Texts.
How often do you read through the Bible using the Lectionary for Sundays and Festivals? The Lectionary for Sundays and Festivals follows a three-year cycle and incorporates a semi-continuous reading for much of the Bible during Ordinary Time, while embracing a select lectionary for the Christmas and Easter cycles and certain other festivals.
How often do you read through the Bible using the Daily Lectionary? The Daily Lectionary is arranged in a two-year cycle and provides for reading twice through the New Testament and once through the Old Testament during the cycle.
What cycle is the lectionary currently following? Where do these readings originate? The Consultation is a forum for liturgical renewal among many of the major Christian churches of North America. I have noticed that some of the Psalms repeat. Why does this happen? There are several times during the church calendar that the Psalm reading repeats. There is considerable variety in the selection of the first psalm, but the second psalm is always one of the Laudate Psalms Psalms ; Psalm is broken in half to make two separate readings, for a total of seven.
Where can I get my own copy of the lectionary readings? The lectionary readings are listed in the Book of Common Worship, starting on page Why is that? The two-year Daily Lectionary is derived from older ecumenical lectionaries, which include readings from the Apocrypha.
Although the Presbyterian Church U. A does not recognize these books as part of the canon of Scripture, we include these readings when applicable for the sake of ecumenical partners who share this resource, as well as for the information of Presbyterian lectionary users. On days when an apocryphal reading is included, there is always an alternate selection from the canonical Hebrew Scriptures provided.
I have seen alternate Old Testament readings in the Revised Common Lectionary resources of other denominations. During the period of Ordinary Time that follows the Day of Pentecost, the Revised Common Lectionary published by the Consultation on Common Texts provides two parallel lectionary tracks: the complementary in which the reading from the Old Testament is thematically tied to the Gospel lesson and the semicontinuous which allows for a more sequential reading through the major stories and themes of certain biblical books.
Historically, churches of the Reformed tradition, including the Presbyterian Church U. What Bible translation is used for the lectionary readings?
Three-Year Series Prayers
Lectionary Revised Common Lectionary Sundays and Principal Festivals This lectionary provides a three-year series of readings for Sunday starting with the season of Advent, four weeks before Christmas Day. For each Sunday and festival, three readings and a psalm are suggested and include: a Gospel reading, an Old Testament reading, and a New Testament reading. The lectionary is a work of The Consultation on Common Texts , an ecumenical consultation of liturgical scholars and denominational representatives from the United States and Canada, who produce liturgical texts for use in common by North American Christian Churches. The Gospel of John is read periodically in all three years and is especially frequent in Year B. The semi-continuous Old Testament readings focus on major Genesis narratives, the covenant with Moses, and the establishment of Israel in the Promised Land. The semi-continuous readings from the Old Testament focus on the covenant of David and Wisdom literature. The semi-continuous Old Testament readings are of prophetic proclamation chosen in chronological order and highlighting Jeremiah.
