"Christmas 02: Flight to Egypt" - Tim Suttle

If we don’t have the kind of relationship with God where God can speak to us & we respond, then our lives will just naturally conform to the conventional wisdom of our culture. And it can be a really decent life. It’s just not the life we’ve been called to live… it’s not what it means to be part of the Kingdom of God.

Epiphany 03: Jesus and Jubilee

by Tim Suttle



Luke 4:14-21

14 Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit, and news about him spread through the whole countryside. 15 He was teaching in their synagogues,and everyone praised him.

16 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,17 and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was handed to him. Unrolling it, he found the place where it is written:

18 “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,
19     to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”

20 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. 21 He began by saying to them, “Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.”
