Luke 1:1-4, 4:14-21

Luke introduces his gospel with his reasons for writing. The gospel continues with Jesus returning home. Though early in his ministry, news of him has spread. He goes to the synagogue on the Sabbath and reads from the prophet Isaiah. The passage explains Jesus’ mission, and he concludes his reading by saying that the words of Isaiah are fulfilled in him.

Your mission continues, by the power of the Holy Spirit. You are the fulfillment of the prophecy, and your Church is the fulfillment on earth of your ministry.
