Luke 4:14-31 The True Messiah Demands True Faith
Jesus begins his public ministry in Luke's Gospel back in his hometown synagogue. Jesus preaches from Isaiah 61 by confirming the prophecy in himself! This lightening bolt lights up the synagogue, but not as much as Jesus' commendation of faith in a Sidonian widow and a Syrian leper. Each expressed faith in God in such a way to inspire us today.
