Wonderful Words of Life
Note that Jesus comes to Nazareth in the power of the Spirit. He had actually been strengthened by the experience of his wilderness encounter with evil. He has gone out to Galilee, showing Jesus’s determination, at the very beginning, to reach out even to the Gentiles. Now he comes back to his own hometown. And what does the Spirit empower Jesus to do? To preach God’s word. The Spirit brings God’s word to speech.
