Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 21 And she shall bring forth a son, and you shall call his name JESUS, for he shall save his people from their sins."2 [Jesus saves people from their sins, not in their sins. He doesn't save us from the consequence of our sins, he saves us from our slavery to sin — he is the deliverer — he rescues men from their sins. For this purpose the Son of God is revealed [in us], that he might destroy [in us] the works of the devil. 1 John 3:8-10.]

 18 "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor [in Spirit]; he has sent me to heal the brokenhearted [who mourn due to their slavery to sin], to preach release to the captives [of sin], and recovery of sight to the [spiritually] blind, to deliver [free] those who are oppressed [in slavery to sin],2 [The gospel is the ministry of the Spirit to totally free you from sin, as you repent from your old ways of selfishness on the inward cross of self-denial; to be washed, cleansed, and purified; to then be translated into kingdom of Christ; and then to live in union with Christ and God, on earth and forever.]

 19 To preach the acceptable year of the Lord."
