Is there a way to create a Visual Filter that would highlight every passage in my NRSV that is a lectionary text in the Revised Common Lectionary?

I don't know the answer Rosie, and am not at a computer to look at. I would think that if the NRSV text is tagged in a way that identifies it with the Lectionary text, there would be a way to design that VF.

AFAIK you can't, even if you could get a passage list, no way of importing PL into a new notefile/highlight file that I can see, would be nice feature for a future build

Sigh. I hope you're wrong, and will wait to see if anyone else comes up with a clever way.

Up until now I've been going through manually highlighting every verse/passage that appears in the lectionary, until I thought to myself, "Wait a minute! This is tedious. There has to be a way to automate this!"

My goal is to find out what Scripture passages are left out of the lectionary, and see if any are worth focusing on for a sermon series, so that the more obscure stuff doesn't get neglected.

Here are the passage list in order which may help.

https://lectionary.library.vanderbilt.edu/citationindex.php Sundays

https://lectionary.library.vanderbilt.edu//daily-citationindex.php Daily

From that sites FAQs

"To see the combined list of passages, check the "Scripture Readings in Biblical Order, Appendix B", found on pages 310-352 in Revised Common Lectionary Daily Readings, Consultation on Common Texts. Fortress Press, 2005."

I cannot see that is my RCL, maybe there is the 2005 one available or you have something in another format you can parse.

Thanks. That is helpful. Still a lot of manual work, but it's easier to do it in canonical order.

I found that in the Kindle edition, which I bought. But it's not selectable text, and not sufficiently enlargeable to do OCR on it, so that won't work.

My best bet (still tedius) is merging the two tables from those two links you posted so that I've got the combined list in canonical order.

I've been trying to do this for years without success in getting FL to understand why I would want to find passages not in a list. I do have two RCL passage lists created from The Text This Week in 2014 - for Sunday RCL and daily RCL if they would be helpful to you ... not certain they would be.
