Message: The gospel according to Luke
Text: Luke 4:18-24
In vs 18-19 Jesus is quoting Isaiah to tell everyone who He is and why He has come. This sounded good to people in Jesus’ day because of hated Roman rule. It sounds good in our culture because of the popularity of healing and prosperity...for example.
The problem of focusing soley on the benefits of 18-19 in this temporal world, is that we all die.
Who is the father of Jesus? There are only 2 choices to choose from.
There is still a wide spread attempt to make Jesus less than He is...God!
John 1:1, 3:16, 5:18, 8:24, 8:58, 10:30-33, 20:28
