The beginning of the good news of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. Mark 1.1
What is the good news of Jesus Christ for us today? At the beginning of his ministry, Jesus expressed his understanding of what he was there to do like this:
When he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, he went to the synagogue on the sabbath day, as was his custom. He stood up to read, and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him. He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written:
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
because he has anointed me
to bring good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives
and recovery of sight to the blind,
to let the oppressed go free,
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour.”
And he rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant, and sat down. The eyes of all in the synagogue were fixed on him. Then he began to say to them, “Today this scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.” (Luke 4.16-21)
Jesus developed what he said and did from his own Jewish tradition – in exciting, extraordinary and controversial new ways. On this page we are planning to look at the story of Jesus’ life, and how it brings fresh hope and meaning to the world now.
