What is the Good News?
A Sermon on Luke 4:18-19
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
because he has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives
and recovering of sight to the blind,
to set at liberty those who are oppressed,
to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor.” (ESV)
What has Jesus to say? has the message come to us as 'good news'? Christianity more than just moral and ethical teaching; poverty in spirit; man is robbed of life itself by sin; the true view of wealth in the example of Paul; the good news explained.
