“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, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”  (Luke 4:18-19).

These words from the prophet Isaiah were what Jesus used to announce his mission.  Luke is God’s good news for everyone, the poor, the prisoners, the blind, the oppressed.  In other words, Luke reveals to us God’s good news for those who in some way are marginalized.  In some way all of us have at times found ourselves marginalized as we have felt insignificant.  We will discover as we dive into the Gospel of Luke that Jesus understands, he was rejected repeatedly by those he came to rescue.  He was misunderstood by those to whom he was proclaiming God’s good news.  Luke is God’s good news for every person no matter their status, their wealth, or their influence.  Join is as we journey through Luke in 2021 and discover this good news for all people.
