Then he began to speak to them. “The Scripture you’ve just heard has been fulfilled this very day!”
(Luke 4:21, NLT)
Jesus claimed to fulfill the OT. That’s pretty bold. You need to be pretty sure of yourself to do that.
They tried to kill him for his impudence. But it wasn’t yet time for him to be killed. That would come later.
Jesus brings good news to the poor. Jesus proclaims release to the captives. Jesus proclaims recovery of sight to the blind. Jesus proclaims the year of the Lord’s favor.
Then he died for it. He died for those to whom he made the proclamations. He died for us.
