Jesus proclaimed in the presence of all one day in the synagogue that He was the fulfillment of a prophecy in Isaiah. The prophecy repeated in our focal scripture passage for today. The prophecy of a Messiah who would come to preach the Gospel, and to set free those who were held captive in the prison of sin. Praise the Lord that Jesus came!
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives.
