Lectionary of the Readings of
the Acts and Epistles (Peshita-Malayalam)
The Lectionary for the
reading lessons in the Holy Eucharist and other Services of the
Orthodox Syrian Church is from the Syriac Peshita Version of the
Bible. The books of Gospel Lessons and other Services, now using, are
from the Malayalam translation of the Syriac Peshita. But the readings
of old Testament, Acts and the epistles, the lessons from the
Malayalam Bible of the Bible Society are followed, in most Churches,
as there is no Peshita Version easily available. Now the Readings of
the Acts and Epistles are compiled from the Malayalam Translation of
Peshita (only for the period from 40th day of the Lent to Thomas
Sunday) for the Study, Comparison and Comments.
