Highlighting the Bible: Part III, Year C (Luke 2013) Gospel Readings

A.Hanson, Minnesota 2014
For the next portion of this project I decided to highlight the parts of the Luke's Gospel that appear in Year C of the Revised Common Lectionary.  Because the Gospel of Luke is the longest Gospel, we are unable to read large portions of it as part of the lectionary.  It appears that the lectionary powers-that-be have elected to exclude large portions of text that are healings, portions of text that are repetitive (such as Jesus foretelling his own death multiple times) or commentary by the writer of Luke's Gospel.

This lectionary year incorporates more readings from the Gospel of John, which will follow in its own blog post.

The following pericopes do not appear in Luke's portion of the lectionary:
