“Jesus Christ” means “Jesus anointed.” One Sabbath he told us what he is anointed to do: He got up in the synagogue; the attendant gave him the scroll of Isaiah. He found the place where it is written:
“The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me.
The Lord has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim
freedom for the captives,
recovery of sight for the blind
and release for the oppressed:
To proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”
— Jesus Anointed, Luke 4:18-19
Then he gave the scroll back and said, “This scripture is fulfilled today in your hearing.”
In other words, “This is what I am anointed to do.”
“Takin’ care o’ business” is his name.”
Since Jesus says the kingdom of heaven is at hand, if I’m not seeing it there are only two possibilities: Either Jesus is wrong or I am in some way blind.
