God’s Mission | Visual Resources for Both Lectionaries on June 18, 2023
This post offers visual resources for the Revised Common Lectionary and the Narrative Lectionary for June 18, 2023. The RCL take us to Abram, Sarai and the guests at Mamre in Genesis 18, the children of Israel at the base of Mt. Sinai in Exodus 19, Paul’s portrait of peace with God in Romans 5, and Jesus’ sending of the twelve on a mission in Matthew 10. All of these texts allow us space to explore God’s mission of promise of peace and wholeness for the world. The NL continues a four-part series on Isaiah.
Revised Common Lectionary
Here are quick links to all the texts for this week:
Genesis 18:1-15, (21:1-7) and Psalm 116:1-2, 12-19
Exodus 19:2-8a and Psalm 100
Matthew 9:35-10:8, (9-23)
You can find a detailed visual telling of this story in slides 38-51 in the PowerPoint below. This is a fun way to convey the text for your teaching and preaching.
Feel free to use any or all of these slides and images in your own preaching and teaching.
The NL will be working through Isaiah in the month of June.
