Isaiah 61:1-4

You can Proclaim it, But will they Follow?

The spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me, because the LORD has anointed me; he has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners; 2 to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn; 3 to provide for those who mourn in Zion-- to give them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit. They will be called oaks of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, to display his glory. 4 They shall build up the ancient ruins, they shall raise up the former devastations; they shall repair the ruined cities, the devastations of many generations.

Musings

The prophet is anointed by God, like Elisha, and proclaims the good news of God's restoration of Israel. Many familiar metaphors are used - the captives are freed, mourning turns to joy, Israelites are like plants showing God's glory and Zion (Jerusalem) is restored. Jesus quotes this passage in Luke 4:18-19. Some refer to it in Luke as the Gospel within the Gospel (aka Jesus' mission statement). It is no coincidence that this cartoon will look familiar to those who have read the Cartoon Gospel of Luke.
