Biblical Words—Lectionary Studies

Jay Wilcoxen spent twenty years teaching Bible at the University of Chicago, before becoming involved in hospital management and finances. In the tradition of the Apostle Matthew, Jay combined accounting and scripture interpreting in his years at Protestants for the Common Good, and in retirement he stills cheers for the causes at Community Renewal Society. Jay's mission is to listen for a Christian Progressive message in the plain and direct sense of the Lectionary readings.

The Good Shepherd, glorified in power, brings new life to God’s people who are in his care.

Ecstatic news of God’s new work leads to a vacant tomb – and retelling the gospel story.

… crucified under Pontius Pilate… “Certainly this man was innocent.”

The ancient royal city is visited by a Prince of Peace it will not accept.

From oppression to hope – exiles to home, the hungry to harvests, the Law to faith, a rich consecration for death.

People who are thirsty and hungry seek the nourishment of God’s word – a word about repentance, returning to their covenant.
