After Jesus was tested in the wilderness in Luke 4, we learn that he returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit and began teaching in the synagogues. Read Luke 4. In Luke 4:16-20, Jesus went to the synagogue in Nazareth on the Sabbath day and read a specific passage from the scroll of the prophet Isaiah. This passage emphasizes the purpose of Jesus’ ministry for the poor, the imprisoned, and the physically challenged. Much of what we encounter in the rest of Luke details Jesus’ encounters with those who were socially marginalized, cast out, and forgotten. Find a story in the Gospel of Luke which shows Jesus’ ministry to and compassion for those who were poor, downtrodden, or in need of physical healing. Describe what happens in the story and what you learned about Jesus from this encounter. What effect did this encounter have on those in the story?
