From Faith Futures
Jump to: navigation, search

This page is part of the Living with Jesus Now series.

From the beginning of 2011 these weekly notes are published as The Once and Future Bible Lectionary Notes. The materials will continue to be posted here for easy access outside the the usual cycle. The new name for the series will link these notes with the book, The Once and Future Bible: An introduction to the Bible for religious progressives, published in January 2011.


The Lectionary pages are supported by the FaithFutures Foundation as a contribution the exploration of the meaning of the Jesus tradition for contemporary people of faith and their religious communities.

Typically a page will be named for the liturgical day in the common three year cycle, e.g. Lent5B is the page for the Fifth Sunday of Lent in Year B.
