Meditation -July 2009
It was in the synagogue in Nazareth where Jesus declared that Isaiah's prophecy was fulfilled. He declared:
"The Spirit of the Lord is on me,
Because he has anointed me
To preach good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
And recovery of sight for the blind,
To release the oppressed,
To proclaim the year of the Lord's favor."
2000 years after this significant incident of the inauguration of Jesus' ministry in the synagogue, we at NBS are aiming to preach the good news to the poor and to proclaim the continual year of the favor of the Lord in Nazareth.
