Hometown Rejection

A dramatic moment the scroll is unrolled and Jesus steps forward and reads from Isaiah

“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.Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.”

He sits down after setting out his life purpose and he should have been warmly greeted until someone said¬†…. Hang on this is Joseph’s son! Even Jesus was rejected. Face the possibility of rejection and invite someone to take a closer look at Christ and his church.
