In this third week of Lent we explore visual resources for both the Revised Common Lectionary and the Narrative Lectionary for March 12, 2023. The RCL takes us to Exodus 17 with Moses bringing water from the rock, Romans 5 where the Spirit pours out grace, and John 4 where Jesus offers living water to the woman at the Well. The Narrative Lectionary takes us to a confrontation about Jesus’ authority and his parable of the wedding banquet.

Lent begins this week with Ash Wedneday and the first Sunday of Lent. The RCL takes us to Matthew 6 for Ash Wednesday and Matthew 4 for Sunday. The Narrative Lectionary continues walking through the story of Matthew and lands in the Community Discourse of Matthew 18. This post has visual resources for all these passages.

What is Lent? This PowerPoint introduces the student to the idea that Lent is like a journey of spiritual spring cleaning. We walk for 40 days, practicing the disciplines of fasting, prayer, and service to prepare our hearts for Easter.

Jesus is on his way to Jerusalem. He is warned that Herod wants to kill him, so he stops and laments over the city that he loves.
