(Say the Jesus Creed morning and evening during Lent.)
Luke 4:42 At daybreak Jesus went out to a solitary place. The people were looking for him and when they came to where he was, they tried to keep him from leaving them. 43 But he said, ?I must preach the good news of the kingdom of God to the other towns also, because that is why I was sent.? 44 And he kept on preaching in the synagogues of Judea..
1. You must take into consideration Mary’s vision to comprehend what Jesus is saying here; that Davidic expectation is what shaped everything about the word “kingdom” in Israel’s prophetic expectations.
2. So, when Jesus starts preaching “kingdom” he’s preaching the fulfillment of Davidic expectations.
3. Which means: earthy, Land, Jerusalem, society, Jesus at center, peace, justice, love.
