- Put the reading in its context, to try to make up for the down side of a lectionary, that we sometimes loose the bigger picture.
- Reveal subtleties in the text, such as the range of meaning of original Hebrew or Greek words and alternate translations.
- Ask a question that might help you look at the text from a different angle.
Click here for the Revised Common Lectionary (Episcopal edition) in its entirety. It contains the reading citations rather than the full text—similar to what is in the back of The Book of Common Prayer. This resource also contains some brief articles on the genesis of the RCL, its purposes, and a comparison between it and the 1979 Lectionary.
