The Revised Common Lectionary is a three year cycle of Scripture readings used by many churches as a way of surveying our biblical tradition. In these pages we have a commentary by Rev Andrew Prior for most Sundays for the Gospel reading of the week. Many of these were written for a project called "a church reWired," which Scots Church funded through 2008-2011.
The first introduction to this series said
Part of the Christian tradition is cautious about first impressions. First impressions are often paired with "judging a book by its cover," and equally disparaged... Slowly, I am learning to pay attention to my first impressions. There is always more to consider, and insight to seek, but often my first impression tells a surprising amount about a passage of scripture- or about myself! It makes sense. If I am being re-formed by my life in the church, surely my instincts count for something, and have themselves also been a little reformed.
The three years of the cycle cover the three Synoptic Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke. Readings from The Gospel of John are interspersed throughout these three, especially in the year of Mark.
