Luke 4:18-19

 

Jesus said...

 

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,

for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor.

He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released,

that the blind will see,

that the oppressed will be set free,

and that the time of the Lord’s favour has come.”

 

(New Living Translation)
