Being People of Advent Hope: Isaiah 61:1-2 - N.T. Wright
"Jesus quotes Isaiah 61:1-2 during what many people see as the very start of his ministry, the Nazareth Manifesto. What can his choice tell us about Jesus's mission, and our mission as Jesus's followers? For one, it reminds us that the Advent hope is a trinitarian hope. God sends Jesus as the servant figure, equipped with God's spirit, to bring about the promised restoration and healing. Jesus extends this vocation to the church, as we ourselves are equipped with God's spirit and enabled to be people of Advent hope. How can you bring a hopeful light to dark places this Advent season?
