Posted by Lee Gatiss, 22 Nov 2017

Lee Gatiss introduces the lectionary readings for the Sunday next before Advent (Year A): Ezekiel 34:11-16 and 20-24, Ephesians 1:15-23, and Matthew 25:31-46.

The lectionary readings for the Sunday next before Advent (Year A) are Ezekiel 34:11-16 and 20-24, Ephesians 1:15-23, and Matthew 25:31-46. In this short video, Lee Gatiss expounds those readings for us today.

The common thread in our readings this week is the gathering of sheep under a glorious shepherd with all authority, who will judge between them for the benefit of his loving people.

You can also follow along with these video expositions on the Facebook page. We also tweet the video link every Sunday morning at 6am for anyone who needs help with last minute sermon prep! 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.
