Year A (Matthew)

Year A is not just the ‘Year of Matthew’. During the weeks following Pentecost the readings from the so-called Old Testament focus on the books of Genesis (the Creation and Patriarchal narratives) and Exodus (the liberation of the Hebrew/Israelite people from Egypt), with some ‘footnotes’ from Deuteronomy (the death of Moses) and Joshua (entry into the promised land, Joshua’s covenant with Israel and his death.) Over the same part of the year the Epistle readings are dominated by portions from Paul’s Letter to the Romans)
