Lee on the Lectionary: First Sunday of Advent (Year B)
Posted by Lee Gatiss, 29 Nov 2017
The theme of our readings for this first Sunday in Advent is waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Yet as the world gears up for Christmas festivities, it is not the first coming of Christ in his lowliness and humility that we are anticipating, but his revelation in glory at the last day.
This week sees the First Sunday of Advent at the start of Year B according to our lectionary. Lee Gatiss continues his expositions of the lectionary readings this week: Isaiah 64:1-9, 1 Corinthians 1:3-9, and Mark 13:24-37.
You can also follow along with these video expositions on the Facebook page. We also tweet the video link every Sunday morning if you’d like a reminder then. Follow us @churchsociety.
The Revd Dr Lee Gatiss is Director of Church Society and writes a weekly column on the lectionary readings in the Church of England newspaper.
