Notes regarding citations from the Revised Common Lectionary.
The Revised Common Lectionary provides for two patterns of readings from the Old Testament during the period between Trinity Sunday and Christ the King.
  1. One is a pattern of paired readings from the Hebrew scriptures readings which are closely related to the gospel readings.
  2. Another reading pattern provides a pattern of semicontinuous readings from the Hebrew scriptures.

The Consultation on Sacred Texts recommends that, while congregations may choose one or the other reading pattern, each pattern should not be intermixed with the other, e.g., the alternate first reading is paired with the alternate reading from Psalms.

*During Eastertide a reading from Acts is often substituted for the lesson from the Hebrew Bible. On the Day of Pentecost, if the Old Testament passage from Ezekiel is chosen for the first reading, the passage from Acts is used as the second reading.
