Narrative Lectionary from Working Preacher

 
"You can’t exhaust the richness of this text. You may enjoy it. Swirl it in the glass. Sniff its delicate aroma. Sip it. Swish it around in your mouth. Talk about its uniquely Johannine vintage. Marvel at its rich, silky, smoky texture. 
But please, as you move to the sermonic moment, don’t spit, as if you were only tasting Christ as a connoisseur! Although the cup of the Johannine Christ is rich, and while we may, as careful exegetes of this text, parse the narrative quite closely, John refuses to parse Christ into ever finer distinctions of taste."

Video: Understanding the Narrative Lectionary: Walk Through the Four Year Reading Cycle
 
The Narrative Lectionary is a four-year cycle of readings. On the Sundays from September through May each year the texts follow the sweep of the biblical story, from Creation through the early Christian church.
 
The texts show the breadth and variety of voices within Scripture. They invite people to hear the stories of Abraham and Sarah, Moses and the prophets, Jesus, and Paul. Listening to the many different voices within Scripture enriches preaching and the life of faith.
 
"We’re out to support, nurture, and inspire preachers working at the craft of creating compelling, faithful, and creative biblical sermons.
