How to Use Lection Connection

Rather than simply providing a “theme of the week”, these short outlines are designed to highlight the connection between passages by referencing the words and concepts that they share in common. In this fashion the reader is invited to discover the linkages in a way that respects the integrity of each segment.

The outlines are not meant to be exhaustive by any means. Rather they are intended to stimulate a deeper appreciation for the ways in which the parts of the Bible are woven together into a whole garment. Its various threads constantly reinforce and enrich one another, both drawing from and shaping a biblical worldview.

Some readers may desire to use a portion of Lection Connection as a brief Introduction to each passage as it is read in church. To make this easier please see “As Introductions” after each outline.
