Jubilee!
Luke's Gospel for the Poor

by Dale Lindsay Morgan

Suggestions for Leaders
by Louise Lawson Johnson

In the nine lessons of Jubilee! Luke's Gospel for the Poor, Dale Lindsay Morgan highlights Jesus' message of jubilee:". . . he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. . . . to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free . . . " (Luke 4:18). Learn about the many ways that Christ's jubilee message turned the world upside down, exalting the poor and including outsiders, bringing the love of God to all.
