img_1233This weekend at Eastbrook Church we continued the second part of our extended journey into the Gospel of Luke entitled “Appearing.”  This series looks at Jesus’ public appearing in ministry in Luke 3 and 4.

This past weekend’s message, “Jubilee,” is an important one in which Jesus preaches from Isaiah 61 in the Nazareth synagogue. You can also follow the entire series at our web-site, through the Eastbrook app, or through our audio podcast.

Also, join in with the weekday reading plan for this series here.

“The word of God came to John son of Zechariah in the wilderness. He went into all the country around the Jordan, preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.” (Luke 3:2-3)

Jesus the Prophet Who Speaks (Luke 4:16-17)

  • Images of enslavement in Egypt
  • Images of exile in Babylon

Jesus the Messiah Who Enacts (Luke 4:18-19)


Jesus the Jubilee Has Come (Luke 4:20-21)


Three Implications of Jesus and Jubilee

  1.  Knowing where we are and our need for Jesus the Jubilee
  2. Experiencing freedom in Jesus and freeing others
  3. Moving into forgiveness in Jesus and forgiving others

 The Polarizing Potential of Jesus (Luke 4:22, 28-30)

  • Receiving His gracious words (4:22)
  • Furious with His piercing words (4:28-30)
