JESUS: The Great I Am


GOOD NEWS Isaiah 61:1, 2 & 3

Isaiah 61:1, 2 & 3
"The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound; to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn; to grant to those who mourn in Zion - to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit; that they may be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that he may be glorified.”

Jesus fulfilled this prophecy by...

Binding the broken hearted: Healing the sick, Raising the dead
Proclaim liberty to captives: Giving sight to the blind, casting out demons
Opening the prisons: Freeing Paul & Peter from prison (and others)
Proclaimed the Lord’s favor: Sermon on the mount
Proclaiming the day of vengeance: Mount Olivet sermon


Luke 8:1
"Soon afterward he [Jesus] went on through cities and villages, proclaiming and bringing the good news of the kingdom of God...”
