First Sunday after Epiphany

Baptism of the Lord

January 12, 2003

Readings for the Second Sunday of Christmas may be used as alternate readings for this Sunday.

Psalm Reading OT Reading Epistle Reading Gospel Reading
Psalm 72:1-7, 10-14 Isaiah 60:1-6 Ephesians 3:1-12 Matthew 2:1-12

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.
