What is your favorite verse and why? Luke 4:21: "And he began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your ears." This short sermon was delivered by Jesus after reading from the Book of Isaiah concerning the Messiah; that He came to preach the Gospel to the poor, to heal the brokenhearted, and to preach deliverance to the captives. Jesus is that Messiah and did and continues to do everything He said He would do!
