Lectionary Bible Study 2019-12-05T22:20:42+00:00

Bible Study – With its origins in history, the only exposure to the scriptures was the public reading of the Word of God, as books were too expensive

A fundamental feature of Christian Worship, the Revised Common Lectionary, follows a 3 year cycle through the old and new testament.  A plan, to make sure that passages are read at an appropriate time in the biblical calendar, over the course the entire bible gets read and nothing is neglected.

Lectionary: the word means Schedule of Readings.  Conceptually taken from Judaism, the Jewish lectionary calls for the Torah to be read aloud in its entirety once each year. The end of the lectionary is marked by the holiday called Simchat Torah.
