Reflection Questions
  • In what ways did Jesus fulfill the prophecy in Isaiah 61:1-2? In what ways did he not fulfill it?

  • From the readings, how do you know that Jesus’ mission was to the whole of mankind, not just to the Judeans? Cite arguments for and against this interpretation.

  • What problems in the understanding of who Jesus was presented themselves to a Jew of Jerusalem or Nazareth as Jesus began his ministry?
