Lee on the Lectionary: Epiphany (Year C)
Posted by Lee Gatiss , 2 Jan 2019
In the Epiphany Psalm, Psalm 72, we read of a king whose reign will last forever, spread over the whole earth, and bring prosperity to all his people.
The lectionary readings for Epiphany (Year C) are Isaiah 60:1-6. Psalm 72. Ephesians 3:1-12. Matthew 2:1-12. In Lectionary Year A, I commented particularly on the Gospel reading for Epiphany in the context of the Old Testament reading from Isaiah. In Year B, I focused on the Epistle reading from Ephesians. So this year (Year C), I would like to look at the Psalm set for today, Psalm 72.
