Jesus once asked His disciples “who do you say that I am?” To answer this question: who is Jesus Christ? we need to look at what Jesus believed was His calling or mission on earth. The first time Jesus really goes public is when He goes to the synagogue in Nazareth and reads a passage from the Torah, or Old Testament of the Bible. The reading was from Isaiah 61:1-2.
Now, open the box that says Torah on it.
This reading for the Jews was an important passage that explained the hope for the coming of the anointed who will liberate them from oppression and release them from Captivity. For the Jews this was a Messiah that would free them from the many enemies they had. For many of them it was a political redeemer. But we will see that Jesus meant a lot more in this identity that would open God’s love to the whole earth. Open the box that has Hebrew writing for "Torah" on it and read the passage aloud. Then set aside for later.
After Jesus read this aloud He did something that no one would dare to do. He said “The Scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.” This proclamation stirred up many of the Jews from their seats. There were many rules about doing these readings and adding to them was not acceptable.
