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.

God calls prophets to deliver news both bad and good, but even good news can be a threat to privileged home folks.

The reading of the scriptures gathers God’s people – and sometimes an Anointed One reads them.

The joy of Epiphany season is that of extravagant weddings!

The Spirit and Voice of God prepare a Servant for God’s people.

God’s own Word came to people, bringing awesome gifts of grace.

The vocation of God’s servants begins in childhood and is apparent in the clothes they wear and the company they keep.

An ecstatic declaration rings out about a Messiah – to oppressed people and to working shepherds.
