The Lectionary

Keep these words that I am commanding you today in your heart. Recite them to your children and talk about them when you are at home and when you are away, when you lie down and when you rise.” (Deuteronomy 6:6-7)

A lectionary is a table of readings from Scripture appointed to be read at public worship.

The Lectionary developed by the Roman Catholic Church after Vatican II (1969) provided for a three-year cycle of Sunday readings. This Roman lectionary provided the basis for the lectionary in 1979 edition of The Book of Common Prayer for use  in the Episcopal Church.

The Common Lectionary was published in 1983 as an ecumenical project of several predominantly English speaking denominations, developed out of a concern for the unity of the church and a desire for a common experience of Scripture.

Revised Common Lectionary (BCP, 889-931)

The Revised Common Lectionary was published in 1992 and was officially adopted by The Episcopal Church in 2006. 

The Revised Common Lectionary makes use of the same three-year cycle of Sunday Eucharistic readings in which Matthew, Mark, and Luke are read in successive years with some material from John read in each year.

BCP Lectionary (BCP, 936-1001)

The Book of Common Prayer Lectionary is a table of readings from Scripture appointed to be read at daily office (Morning & Evening Prayer) and Eucharist (except Sunday).

The Book of Common Prayer Lectionary makes use of a two-year cycle of semi-continuous reading from th Old Testament, the Epistles, and the Gospels. The Psalms are arranged in a seven-week pattern, recurring throughout the year, except for appropriate variations during certain seasons.
