The Revised Common Lectionary is a collection of readings from the Bible, both Old and New Testaments. It offers an organised way to read and study of the Bible, particularly in the context of the worship service. Many congregations use the lectionary readings each Sunday in their services, and sermons often involve reflections on these readings.

The Revised Common Lectionary (RCL) is a three-year cycle of Bible readings. It follows the seasons of the Christian year and begins each year with the first Sunday in Advent, which usually falls on the last Sunday in November.
