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.

You can 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 to begin the week. Follow us @churchsociety.
