The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. And he closed the book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.
Question:" WHY did JESUS close the book ?
WHY The Messiah Jesus did NOT CONTINUE reading?
Had Christ continued to read He would have crossed a "dispensational line":
Here is where He read from:
Isaiah 61:1-2 The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;
Here the reason:
Between the red and blue highlighted words
more than 2000 years elapse.
The entire dispensation of the grace of God
is hidden behind that tiny red comma.
It is EVIDENT that Christ knew exactly that between the :
"To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn;"
there was going to be an interval,and that would have been THE DISPENSATION of THE GRACE of GOD that HE REVEALED to THE NEW APOSTLE "PAUL",starting in Acts 9 when THE RISEN CHRIST would appear to Saul of Tarsus and save him and make of him the Apostle,Preacher and Teacher of the Gentiles.
Some teach that Jesus did not know the Mystery while on earth.
I suspect such people deny the DIVINITY of CHRIST ,as well His MANHOOD.
