Lectionary Resources

First Sunday of Christmas

December 29, 2013

Psalm Reading OT Reading Epistle Reading Gospel Reading
Psalm 148 Isaiah 63:7-9 Hebrews 2:10-18 Matthew 2:13-23

Epiphany is always observed on January 6, which usually falls on a weekday. Since many church traditions that follow the lectionary do not have weekday services, they observe Epiphany on either the Sunday before or, more often, the Sunday following January 6. The Readings for Epiphany can replace the regular lectionary readings on either Sunday to observe Epiphany.
