Lectionaries, Etc.

This One-Year Lectionary is copied from the Lutheran Service Book (2006).  The lessons appointed from the Holy Gospels and the Epistles are for the most part those used by liturgical Western Churches for centuries until the second half of the 20th century.  The remaining Scriptures were appointed at a much later date. The pages created by the administrator of this site will only include the lessons from the Old Testament, the Psalms (using the complete Psalm, rather than just a selection, except for Psalm 119, which will use selections as divided in the 1662 Book of Common Prayer), the Epistles, and the Holy Gospel.
