3 February 2019 - Andrew McKain looks at the Jesus' sermon that so upset the people of Nazareth. Jesus preached a message of jubilee, of restoration, reversal of fortunes, healing for society, end of oppression. However, in delivering this message, Jesus crosses boundaries that made his neighbors uncomfortable. Jesus reaches out to the marginal and the outcast. Jesus announces himself as our jubilee. Instead of fixing what we think is wrong with the world, he first fixes us and frees us from our fear and bitterness so we can tear down the walls that separate us from others. Readings: Jeremiah 1:4-10; 1 Corinthians 13:1-13; Luke 4:14-28
