Luke 4:14-30

"Prophetic" - accurately describing or predicting what will happen in the future.

"Fulfillment" - the achievement of something desired, promised, or predicted.

In Jesus' opening the scroll, He was making known his purpose.

His power was from the Spirit of the Lord.

His message was good - release, recovery of sight, and freedom.

His audience may not have recognized the type of poverty, oppression, or blindness of which He was speaking.

Why would He remind them of their ancestors' rejection of a prophet?

We are all in need.

As one year ends and another begins .........?
