    Curious– why “a year of John”? I’ve heard some suggestions from others about why this might be done. Curious what your reasoning might be.

    I can tell you something of why CCT decided not to pursue this, but rather to “distribute” John across the three years if that’s of interest (or perhaps you are aware of our reasons and the reasons of OLM for taking this approach).

    In fact, I need to update this page, since last year (Year B, the Year of Mark) we did a modified Year of John in my congregation, and it went well. The basic reasoning is that John is meant to be read from beginning to end. One hears plenty of passages from John in the RCL, but very often, they do not follow one another in the order in the Gospel, and so connections and echoes between them are lost. John becomes an occasional interruption to the Synoptics.

    In our “year of John,” we ended up moving semicontinuously through John until the season of Easter, and then transitioned back to the RCL for the summer and fall. Indeed, a whole year of John texts would be a bit much, and yet there was definitely worthwhile focusing on John for an extended period of time.
