Week 2 of 4; Pastor Matthew continues our series on Luke's gospel, this time looking at Jesus’ first visit to his hometown after the start of his public ministry. He already has been baptized and faced Satan’s temptation in the desert. The primary Scripture gives us a vivid view of Jesus as he declares that he has come to bring salvation to those who need it, followed by the people’s reaction to this news. Even today, followers of Jesus face opposition to the truth of Jesus’ message, and we need encouragement to stand up for what’s right, just like Jesus did.
