Today we looked at the passage which describes the springtime of Jesus ministry. In the synagogues Jesus message was well received and the people were amazed at his teaching. Jesus began to proclaim his message in Galilee which was very cosmopolitan and would be open to new things. Next Luke describes Jesus speaking in the synagogue in Nazareth. Many there had difficulty accepting that one they knew and had seen grow up before them was a special messenger of God. Jesus began by reading a prophecy from Isaiah and saying that the prophecy was filled by him. He thereby made a claim to be the Messiah and to be ushering God’s kingdom on earth. His teaching was new and for the time. We were reminded that God has placed us where we are and calls us to minister in our day. We considered too how we relate to the teachings we receive.
May we seek to make Christ known in these days and remember that he has come to bring healing and reconciliation to those who acknowledge their need of him. His message is Good News indeed.
