Here's scholar and author Dr. Diana Butler Bass with an inspiring Day1 Minute...
Jesus could have appealed to his friends' sense of theological nostalgia - How great Isaiah was! - or their fragile theological hope for a better future - The kingdom of God will come! But he did neither.
Instead, he said, "Today this scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing."
Jesus essentially told his friends, "Look around. See the Spirit of God at work, right here. Right now. God is with us. Just as I AM promised our father Moses at the burning bush, 'I will be with you,' This is the sign of God's covenant. The ever active, ever loving, ever liberating, always present God is here with us. Now."
