Third Sunday After the Epiphany, Year C
Scripture: Luke 4:14-21
Jesus, energized by the retreat he has just completed and filled with the Holy Spirit, comes to the synagogue in his own hometown on the Sabbath. Taking the scroll of the Prophet Isaiah, he reads: “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me.” When he finishes reading the passage, he rolls up the scroll and sits down. What did those in attendance hear? What do we hear?
