Albert Reyes

Very good word, Mark! Thanks for shedding more light on social justice and the Kingdom.

Mark

Dr. Reyes. Many commentators state that "the year of the Lord's favor" refers to the Jubilee year. The Jubilee was to be a radical act of social justice as the "haves" give over to the "have nots" forgiveness of debts, money, land and the like. Jesus, calls us in his inaugural sermon, back to God's vision of justice and healing between the rich and poor... which as you noted so well is only possible through kingdom life in Jesus himself. What a joy it is to be part of Jesus and his kingdom project, and part of Buckner which is right in the midst of it!
