Preaching Text Study

Preaching Text Study

Narrative Lectionary Bible Study Resources

Immanuel uses the Narrative Lectionary, a four-year cycle of readings, as the preaching texts. On the Sundays from September through May each year the texts follow the sweep of the biblical story, from Creation through the early Christian church.  The texts show the breadth and variety of voices within Scripture. They invite people to hear the stories of Abraham and Sarah, Moses and the prophets, Jesus, and Paul. Listening to the many different voices within Scripture enriches preaching and the life of faith.

You can read and reflect on the lessons individually or connect with a couple friends.

Bible Study for Small Group Discussion
Here are weekly resources to help you explore the Bible verses that will be the center of the preaching text for each Sunday.
