Luke 4:14 - 21Then Jesus, filled with the power of the Spirit, returned to Galilee, and a report about him spread through all the surrounding country. He began to teach in their synagogues and was praised by everyone.When he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, he went to the synagogue on the sabbath day, as was his custom. He stood up to read, and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him. He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written:

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,because he has anointed meto bring good news to the poor.He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind,to let the oppressed go free,to proclaim the year of the Lords favor.And he rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant, and sat down. The eyes of all in the synagogue were fixed on him. Then he began to say to them, Today this scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing.Kaleidoscope bible StudyFirst ReadingInvite participants to capture a word, a phrase or image when listening to the passageInvite someone to read the passageTake a moment of silence to capture a word, a phrase or image that stood out from the passage for themUsing Mutual Invitation, invite each person to briefly share his or her word, phrase or image (This should take no more than five minutes)Insert scripture passage after this slide Acts 15:17Kaleidoscope bible StudySecond ReadingInvite participants to consider the second question appointed for this passage.
