god's Word

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach the good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to captives and recovering sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.
(Luke 4:18-19, RSV)

God's promise to bless Abram and Israel
(Genesis 12:1-3, RSV)
