Frequently Asked Questions:

What is the Revised Common Lectionary?
The current Revised Common Lectionary was a collaborative project publicly released in 1994. It provides participating churches a set of assigned Scriptures for each Sunday of the Year following a three year cycle (Year A,B,C).

  • Year A begins on the first Sunday of Advent in 2016, 2019, etc.
  • Year B begins on the first Sunday of Advent in 2017, 2020, etc.
  • Year C begins on the first Sunday of Advent in 2018, 2021, etc.

Readings marked as “N/A” won’t be read in this liturgical cycle. We will however update this table at the conclusion of Year A, then Year B, and Year C which will change some of the assigned lectionary readings due to how certain Holy Days fall on our calendar year.

Why was the Revised Common Lectionary created?
The concept allows continuity among the members of each participating church and denomination to “read, mark and inwardly digest” a common set of Scriptures each week of the year.  Here’s an historical explanation of the Lectionary from the ELCA.  The historic tradition of the Lectionary comes from Judaism, their tradition to “complete” the reading of the Torah in the temple thus helping every member of hte community come to know and devote themselves more fully to YHWH.

Where can I find the other readings within the RCL?
The three most familiar resources are the LectionaryPage, the Vanderbilt Library, and the Text This Week (which shows differences in the Lectionary for the Roman Catholic Church, Episcopal Church, ELCA, and PCUSA).

What passages of Scripture were left out of the Revised Common Lectionary?
The answer really depends on which adaptation your denomination might be using and which track they might be using in the summer months. On one count 90% of the Old Testament, and 50% of the New Testament verses are omitted. However, the Text this Week shows the differences per denomination in a table for Matthew, Mark, Luke and John.

The version we’ve listed above includes only 2407 of 3778 verses in the four Gospels. This means that 36.28% of the verses from the Gospel are omitted. However when comparing the table to the Harmony of the Gospels we find that 53 out of 255 sections (20.78%) denoted by Thomas and Gundry are omitted entirely (1, 3, 4, 8c, 30, 32a, 33, 36, 38, 40, 49b, 49c, 52, 53, 62, 64h, 68, 79b, 80, 81a, 81b, 89, 94, 96a, 97, 98, 99a, 99b, 101b, 106, 107, 108a, 112, 113a, 120b, 125a, 129a, 129b, 131, 137b, 139c, 140, 141, 148, 150d, 150e, 158, 175, 179, 180, 181, 182).

Alternative Lectionary Cycles
In addition to the option of using track one or track two in the summer months, you may wish to consider the Year D Project created by The Rev. Dr. Timothy Matthew Slemmons.  Year D supplements some of the missing passages. There is also the Narrative Lectionary – an innovative break from tradition initiated by Profs. Rolf Jacobson and Craig Koester of Luther Seminary, in partnership with congregations across North America.

Why does Harmony Bible Coop care about the RCL?
Many of our members are members of mainline protestant churches (TEC, ELCA, PCUSA) as is The Rev. Robert Eaton, co-host and teacher for Harmony Bible, who serves in The Episcopal Church. We intend to develop a similar page for the Narrative Lectionary.

What should we do with this resource?
Our hope for those attending a liturgical church is that they might use Harmony’s Lectionary Series as a guide for Sunday bible study, discussion groups, forums, and Sunday school classes with Adults and even teens. Giving the members to read “The Rest of the Story” helps them better understand each reading in its chronological sequence as well as by reading the parallel passages from the other Gospel writers.

Can my pastor or priest help generate the posts, and podcasts for Harmony’s Lectionary Series?
We would be delighted to speak to clergy and lay readers who would like to volunteer to help develop Harmony’s Lectionary Series. If you’re interested, please contact us.
