How can you so consistently get things so muddled up?
No answer yet. Staling for time.
Seriously, learn to read in context.
No answer yet. Still staling and evading.
Take a class or something. It'll help you to be able to understand not only other posters in this forum, but scripture as well.
Still not answer. Still cowardly evasion, staling, sidestepping, with phony condescension
ThinkOfOne champions Luke 4:14-21 as such a universally positive proclamation.
Actually ThinkOfOne was pointing out the fact that in Luke 4:18-19 Jesus declared the purpose for which He was anointed,
Any answer to the question of why they wanted to KILL Him? No. Red herring instead. - "Actually, ... [some other stuff no pertaining to my question]"
i.e,, what makes Him the Christ.
The question is about why they wanted to kill Him after such an announcement.
I think the answer should be RIGHT THERE in the text.
Some nerve you have whinning about my reading comprehension.
Maybe ThinkOfOne is close to an answer now.
You believe that the purpose for which He was anointed was very different.
Does he address WHY they wanted to execute Him?
A Master Evader.
If in Luke Jesus began His ministry by proclaiming He was the fulfillment of Isaiah's word about the year of Jubilee,
No answer STILL as to why they wanted to throw Him off the edge of the hill.
why did they get angry?...
This looks promising.
How come then they wanted to KILL Jesus [in] the same occasion afterwards?
The fact is that they were angered by what Jesus had to say in the intervening verses: (Luke 4:23-27)
Better. At least now you attempt to address the passage.
in response to them calling question to what He had to say (Luke 4:22b). Note that the initial reaction was positive (Luke 22a).
Kind of a let down ToO. You haven't answered yet. You've rightly referred to the intervening verses. And you rightly mention the response of the audience was at first positive.
"And all bore witness to Him and marveled at the words of grace proceeding out of His mouth, and the said, is not this Joseph's son?" (v.22)
Better, but not quite good enough. YOU DIDN'T YET ANSWER THE QUESTION!
Jesus compared Himself to a couple of Old Testament prophets, Elijah and Elisha. Though they came to the nation as great liberators, healers, and comforters, the nation hated them and opposed them tooth and nail.
Why? Because they weren't for God.
So Jesus comes with encouraging words about loosing captives and setting prisoners free and all that good humanistic stuff. Yet those not caring for God will be miffed all the same, seek to murder God's "anointed"
and disbelieve His sent ones, and prefer their sins instead.
Bottom Line. Jesus may come to set free and release captives and heal. But if you hate God to begin with and wish He's go away and leave you alone, there is no reason for you to rejoice.
You'll be busy plotting His destruction.
I give you a C for finally
meandering around to a incomplete response. And some "context" expert, you ain't.
