Author: April Yamasaki
A Lenten Study Based on the Revised Common Lectionary
Explore God’s saving and redeeming love through a seven-week Lenten study.
Christ Is for Us, originally released in 2016, invites readers to explore God’s saving and redeeming love through a seven-week study of the Scripture readings for Lent and Easter. Key Bible passages call us to embrace God’s salvation and the new life offered to us through Christ.
This study is based on the Revised Common Lectionary scriptures for year A. The study includes commentary and reflection on readings from the Old Testament, the Gospels, and the Epistles. It offers the opportunity to explore these Bible readings in a seven-session study. It will help participants understand, appreciate, and engage in meaningful and life-changing spiritual practices and offer gratitude for God’s salvation through Jesus Christ.
