Following Jesus means caring about others.
We start with a crucial moment from Jesus’ life, found in Luke 4:14-24, 28-30. After Jesus returned from being tempted in the wilderness, he started teaching in the Synagogue. Soon Jesus traveled to Nazareth, where he grew up. Jesus went to the Synagogue, stood in front of the crowd, and read an important passage from Isaiah about the promised Messiah. Jesus says that he is the One sent to fulfill those things written in Isaiah: bringing freedom, healing, and hope to ALL people. Jesus let everyone know His purpose in life.
