“Jesus’ Anointing”

What is your understanding of someone being “anointed?”

Jesus was anointed to:

  • Preach good news to the poor.
  • What is the good news? Who are the poor?
  • What impact does the good news have on the poor?
  • Proclaim freedom for prisoners - those taken captive by the devil.
  • How do you see Jesus doing this?
  • Give recovery of sight to the blind – those “unable to see clearly.”
  • So who might some of these people be?
  • Release the oppressed - those “crushed of strength.
  • Who would this apply to and how does Jesus set them free?
  • Proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.
  • What do you think this is about?

After a reading from the Scriptures the speaker would then expound on or explain the assigned reading. What does Jesus offer as an explanation?

  • What is the initial response to Jesus’ declaration?
  • Why do you think the people became so furious at Jesus?

Luke 4:30 - “But he walked right through the crowd and went on his way”

  • What does this reveal to you about Jesus and His ministry?
