Tuesday is for Preaching
Commenting on Jesus quoting Isaiah 61:1f where both kerussein and euaggelizesthai both appear in the LXX, Friedrich states:
“He proclaims, like a herald, the year of the Lord, the Messianic age. When heralds proclaimed the year of jubilee throughout the land with the sound of the trumpet, the year began, the prison doors were opened, and debts were remitted. The preaching of Jesus is such a blast of the trumpet.”
—Kittel’s Theological Wordbook
When you preach the word of God this week, make sure that your message has a note of triumphant joy. The gospel is a joyous announcement. Proclaim it with boldness.
