Compassionate Forgiveness

Compassionate Forgiveness

Luke 4:14-21

Jesus came to the Synagogue as was his custom. He was brought up in Nazareth and it was their custom as a family to attend Synagogue. The interesting thing about this particular text is that when the scroll was handed to Jesus, (the scroll of Isaiah , they were all individual scrolls) and he started to read around Isaiah 61 but in our bibles today, the text that he read in Luke is part of Isaiah 61 and part of Isaiah 58 and goes back to Isaiah 61. So, Jesus was kind of going back and forth. He’s trying to make a point. This at the beginning of his ministry in Luke and the very first thing that is said in this particular text, the spirit of the Lord was upon him.
