Sunday Revised Common Lectionary Readings

The Revised Common Lectionary provides scripture readings for proclamation in public worship, following the Sundays, festivals, and seasons of the Christian year (or liturgical calendar). The three-year lectionary cycle (Years A, B, and C) focuses on different sections of scripture each year, notably the Gospel of Matthew in Year A, Mark in Year B, and Luke in Year C (the fourth gospel, John, is prominently featured at certain times in each year). 

 

New Revised Standard Bible

The NRSV was intended to take advantage of the discovery of the Dead Sea Scrolls and other manuscript discoveries, and to reflect advances in scholarship since the RSV had been released.
