Our teaching series for 2013 is focussing on the Manifesto of Jesus from Luke 4:18-21. We will be spending each Sunday looking at aspects of what Jesus read and how it still applies to us today.
Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit, and news about him spread through the whole countryside. He was teaching in their synagogues, and everyone praised him.
He went to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and on the Sabbath day he went into the synagogue, as was his custom. He stood up to read, and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was handed to him. Unrolling it, he found the place where it is written:
“The Spirit of the Lord is on me,
because he has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
and recovery of sight for the blind,
to set the oppressed free,
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”
Then he rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant and sat down. The eyes of everyone in the synagogue were fastened on him. He began by saying to them, “Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.” (New International Version®, NIV® Copyright © 1973, 1978, 1984, 2011 by Biblica, Inc.)
So join us on Sundays at The Littlehampton Academy from 10:30am to get inspired about Jesus!
