Discover the Lectionary is intended to bring you closer to God through a more profound experience of encountering the Bible. Many churches throughout the world share in the standard reading of specific scriptures each Sunday according to a three-year (A, B, C) cycle. Typically, the Sunday readings include one from the Old Testament, a Psalm, one from the Epistles, and a Gospel reading. Each Discover the Lectionary episode reflects the prescribed texts for each Sunday according to the Revised ...
 
Cultivating Tov is a long-form conversation each week about the Scriptures and life with Jesus, in his Way. We explore every text through storytelling, provocative questioning, and careful attention to the context when/where these ancient texts originated. We follow the Revised Common Lectionary's gospel passages each week. Cultivating Tov is also the main teaching hub for a church in the Portland/Vancouver metro area called "Tov Communion."
 
Following the format of the Common Lectionary, Pastor Adam Ericksen and Lindsey Paris-Lopez explore passages of scripture together, sharing insights, real-life applications, and meaning for the modern world. “Jesus Unmasked” seeks to remove the masks of exclusive theology and violent cultural lenses that obscure the truth of Jesus’s unconditional love. Scripture passages are read from the Revised Standard Version of the Bible. "Jesus Unmasked" is a Raven Foundation production.
 
First Reading offers exegetical resources for the Old Testament Lectionary reading each week. Hosts Rachel Wrenn and Tim McNinch are PhD students at Emory University. Each month, they invite a leading Hebrew Bible scholar for a longer conversation about the nitty-gritty of the week's text.
 
Join the Rev. Jacob Smith and the Rev. Aaron Zimmerman each week as they break down the lectionary texts for the coming Sunday with Gospel insight, a few (in)appropriate cultural references, and a heart for the sufferer in the pew—and the pulpit. All in a half an hour or so. Lectionary readings here: http://www.lectionarypage.net/. Audio production by TJ Hester
 
Fresh Text is a weekly podcast in which Pastor-scholars discuss a scripture passage and swap sermon starter ideas. This weekly podcast is especially (though not exclusively) useful for preachers who follow revised common lectionary. But we hope it would be edifying and/or enjoyable for any listener!!!
 
Once a month Lydia and Becca focus on a lectionary or liturgical aspect of worship and discuss creative things you can do in worship or in the life of the congregation in "What's Brewing?". Each episode also include Scripture Shots with a quick creative thing you can do each week based on the Revised Common Lectionary and a Chaser which is a shout out to another resource you can turn to for creative worship. All this is done with some favorite or punny beer, cider, wine or alcohol suggestions.
 
For over 6 years, Brian G. Murphy and Fr. Shannon TL Kearns have shared an LGBTQ perspective on a different Bible passage each week.

Join tens of thousands of listeners from around the world for the Bible, every week, queered.
 
Surviving the Bible seeks to get your sermon/service prep jumpstarted by homing in on crucial issues and themes in the passages and talking through possible opportunities and issues in preaching the various texts. We’ll aim for Lectionary commentary that is sharp and practical, maybe seasoned with a pinch of snark. Join Rev. Amy Piatt, Dr. Tripp Fuller, and guru impersonator Christian Piatt for some weekly fun.
