A lection is a reading, in this context, from Scripture.
The custom of reading the books of Moses in the synagogues on the Sabbath day was a very ancient one. The addition of lections (i.e. readings) from the prophetic books had been made afterwards and was in existence at the time of Jesus, as may be gathered from such passages as St Luke 4:16-20, 16:29. This element in synagogue worship was taken over with others into the Christian divine service, see Early Christianity, additions being made to it from the writings of the Apostles and evangelists as the New Testament canon developed. We find traces of such additions within the New Testament itself in such directions as are contained in Colossians 4:16; First Thessalonians 5:27.
From the 2nd century onwards references multiply, though the earlier references do not prove the existence, of a fixed lectionary or order of lessons, but rather point the other way. Justin Martyr, describing divine worship in the middle of the 2n
