Take a visual tour of the Sabbath Law. See how it changed from Exodus to Deuteronomy and how Jesus thought about it in the Gospels.
This post offers visual resources for the Revised Common Lectionary and the Narrative Lectionary for August 13, 2023. The RCL takes us to three powerful stories this week. First, we look at Joseph in Genesis for two weeks. Second, we read the story of Elijah and God on Mt. Horeb. Finally, we witness Jesus walking on water in Matthew 14:22-33. The NL concludes a series on Wisdom literature by looking at The Song of Solomon. It pairs this with Mark 8:35-37 for the Gospel reading.
The NL pairs Proverbs 1:1-7; 3:1-8 with Matthew 13–the parables of Jesus–for the readings on July 23. This makes sense, since Jesus’ parables function in a very similar way to the Hebrew proverbs.
This video offers a reading of Acts 1:1-14 and the visual from A Cartoonist’s Guide to Acts. Feel free to use this as your scripture reading in worship or for your class.
