The Revised Common Lectionary is a 3-year system of bible readings, that has been adopted by the majority of mainstream protestant churches in North America; and that enjoys wide adoption throughout the rest of world as well. A very similar lectionary is used by the Roman Catholic church. The Lectionary provides four readings for each Sunday of the year: 1) an old Testament reading, 2) a reading from the Psalms, 3) a new Testament reading, and a Gospel reading. The Lectionary groups these readings together based on a common theme drawn from the Gospel reading for that week; however alternate Old Testament readings and alternate Psalms are provided for congregations who choose to hear the great stories of the Old Testament in a s emi-continuous manner from week to week. The Lectionary also provides readings for most Holy Days.


The Vanderbilt Divinity Library maintains the list of Lectionary Readings and makes them available at http://lectionary.library.vanderbilt.edu/. You will find links to the Vanderbilt Library on many of the following pages.
