Good Friday morning.
Today’s reading: Luke 4:16-20
As is my custom when you click the link to read the passage you will find 3 different translations from which to choose to read.
16 Now when he went to Natzeret, (Nazareth) where he had been brought up, on Shabbat he went to the synagogue as usual. He stood up to read,
17 and he was given the scroll of the prophet Yesha‘yahu. (Isaiah) Unrolling the scroll, he found the place where it was written,
18 “The Spirit of Adonai is upon me;
therefore he has anointed me
to announce Good News to the poor;
he has sent me to proclaim freedom for the imprisoned
and renewed sight for the blind,
to release those who have been crushed,
19 to proclaim a year of the favor of Adonai.”
20 After closing the scroll and returning it to the shammash, (attendant) he sat down; and the eyes of everyone in the synagogue were fixed on him. source
[English words added kwt]
on Shabbat he went to the synagogue as usual
As usual. Yeshua. Jesus, if you prefer, the perfect Jew.
The perfect Man.
The perfect GOD.
What is not to love about HIM?!!
Nothing, I tell you. Nothing!
Unrolling the scroll, he found the place where it was written,
He was familiar. So very familiar with that Scroll of Isaiah.
From the time He learned to read as a toddler (in my opinion), He began reading the Sacred Scrolls – the Ones He had inspired man to pen.
And yet to identify with us, He LEARNED to read and APPLY His very own Word as a MAN – the GODMAN. John 1 Luke 2
Oh! what a MAN He is! Oh! What GOD He is!!
Enjoy your Friday,
