July 16, 2017 Download: Audio

Pastor Chris continues the conversation, looking at how Jesus himself characterized his ministry, quoting the prophet Isaiah.  His prophetic call is found in Luke 4:14-19. In this passage, we see with laser-beam clarity the call for every believer to balance justice and mercy.

Luke 4:14-19English Standard Version (ESV)
Jesus Begins His Ministry
14 (A)And Jesus returned (B)in the power of the Spirit to Galilee, and (C)a report about him went out through all the surrounding country. 15 And (D)he taught in their synagogues, being glorified by all.

Jesus Rejected at Nazareth
16 (E)And he came to (F)Nazareth, where he had been brought up. And (G)as was his custom, (H)he went to the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and he stood up (I)to read. 17 And (J)the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him. He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written,

18 (K)“The Spirit of the Lord (L)is upon me,
because he has anointed me
to (M)proclaim good news to the poor.
(N)He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives
and (O)recovering of sight to the blind,
(P)to set at liberty those who are oppressed,
19 (Q)to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”
