These readings have been taken from the Revised Common Lectionary Year B prepared by the Vanderbilt School of Divinity.
In preparing this study, I have been guided by notes in The New American Bible, The Tyndale New Testament Commentaries, William Barclay’s Daily Study Bible, Nelson’s Compact Bible Commentary, The Communicator’s Commentary on John’s Gospel, Everyman’s Bible Commentary on John’s Gospel, The Layman’s Bible Commentary on Matthew’s Gospel and the International Theological Commentary on the Book of Isaiah.
May God grant you a holy Lent.
