Lee on the Lectionary: 3rd Sunday of Easter (Year B)

Posted by Lee Gatiss, 11 Apr 2018

Our readings this week contain curious mixture of boldness and doubt. In the Gospel reading, Jesus is confident in the fulfilment of scripture, but the disciples are frightened and disbelieving; in Acts, the disciples are now courageous, but their hearers are gobsmacked and mistaken; and in the Epistle, God’s children can be audaciously pure but the world looks on with incomprehension.

Lee Gatiss expounds the lectionary readings for the 3rd Sunday of Easter (Year B), which are Acts 3:12-19, 1 John 3:1-7, and Luke 24:36b-48.

You can also follow along with these video expositions on the Lee on the Lectionary Facebook page. We also tweet the video link every Sunday morning at 6am for those who like a morning exposition of the word. Follow us @churchsociety.

Revd Dr Lee Gatiss is the Director of Church Society and a weekly columnist in the Church of England Newspaper
