First Sunday after Epiphany

Baptism of the Lord

January 8, 2017

Psalm Reading OT Reading Epistle Reading Gospel Reading
Psalm 29 Isaiah 42:1-9 Acts 10:34-43 Matthew 3:13-17

Epiphany is always observed on January 6, which usually falls on a weekday. Since many church traditions that follow the lectionary do not have weekday services, they observe Epiphany on either the Sunday before or following January 6. The Readings for Epiphany can replace the regular lectionary readings on either Sunday to observe Epiphany.

Commentary on the Texts

Matthew 3:13-17

There is no Lectionary Commentary for this reading, but there is available a
Voice Bible Study on Matthew 3:1-4:25
