Jesus' Mission

We read in Luke 4:14-30 that Jesus begins his public ministry by announcing the release of the captives and the oppressed. He declares that today the prophecy of Isaiah in connection with the coming of Christ is fulfilled. This sermon drew the people to conflict. People are amazed at his kind words, but they are worried because they know who Jesus is. They knew his parents and watched Jesus grow up. Jesus preached well, but they did not accept what Jesus said. They tried to kill Jesus by throwing him off a cliff, but Jesus passed through them unharmed. The time for Jesus had not yet come. No one would take his life. Jesus would give his life voluntarily at the right time.
