4:19 The acceptable year - Plainly alluding to the year of jubilee, when all, both debtors and servants, were set free.


Discussion for Luke 4

  • Brother William
    41 And devils also came out of many, crying out, and saying, Thou art Christ the Son of God. And he rebuking them suffered them not to speak: for they knew that he was Christ. What thing is this? What new doctrine is this? What manner of man is this that even the unclean spirits are subject to Him?

    Luke 4: 17-21-- I love these vs. especially because they are 'endowed' with such solemnity and grace. Jesus took the BOOK, opened it to the place where it was written and 'standing' in respect of the reading of the word - He let them know WHY He was here; then, after closing the BOOK He sat down. What He read was a summary of the next three years of His life - in a nutshell.
  • Charan Iswary B.Th.
    Satan tempts us according to our weaknesses. We should fast and pray for God's mission for task.
  • Luke truly beleived if we prophesies to ourselves and beleive we can surly be heal with out doubting or any negative thoughts to the mind.
  • before I googled this scripture, I heard the Lord Say, if you continue to give to missions People will be astonished at your doctrine.
  • Pamela
    Jesus taught on the sabbath here. Remember we are told in Gods word to "Remember the sabbath and keep it holy." That's because the sabbath day is sanctified by God. The Vatican says:" If you wish to keep the sabbath of the Lord of the Bible, you will kkeep Saturday. However, for traditions sake, we will keep Sunday." WOAH. The Bible says not to keep meaningless genealogies or vain traditions of men.
