East Syrian Lectionaries Comparison, `AzīzāŽel and Forty Martyrs

This table compares the two very similar East Syrian lectionaries:  that of the Monastery of Mār `AzīzāŽel
and that of the Church of the Forty Martyrs.  This format helps to display not only the similar church
calendar employed in the two lectionaries, but also the similar pericopes/lessons for each of the
various commemorations and events.

I have also provided elsewhere the Monastery of `AzīzāŽel and the Church of the Forty Martyrs lectionaries 
individually.

One little problem I have yet to rectify between these two lectionaries is the reading for "Commemoration
of the Martyrs."  Note that the
`AzīzāŽel lectionary information provided by Voobus gives the NT passage 
as 1Cor 3.17-4.6.  The Forty Martyrs lectionary information indicates the reading is 2Cor 3.17-4.6.  Until
I have checked the actual facsimiles, to ascertain the correct book of Corinthians to which this pericope
belongs, I will keep both citations marked with "[sic]."
