"The spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me; he has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners; to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor...
How Jesus Read His Bible
and the day of vengeance of our God."

[quoting Isaiah 61:1-2]
Luke 4:18-19
"The rest shall hear and be afraid, and a crime such as this shall never again be committed among you.

Show no pity: life for life, eye for eye,tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot."

[Deuteronomy 19:21]
How Jesus Read His Bible
“You have heard that it was said,
‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’

But I say to you, Do not violently respond to an evildoer in kind. But if anyone strikes you on the right cheek, turn the other also."
Matthew 5:38-39
How Paul Read His Bible
For I tell you that Christ has become a servant of the Jews on behalf of God's truth, to confirm the promises made to the patriarchs so that the Gentiles may glorify God for his mercy, as it is written:
Romans 15:8
How Paul Read His Bible
"Again it says, 'Rejoice, O Gentiles, with his people...
Romans 15:9
"I destroyed my foes. They cried for help, but there was no one to save them...to the Lord, but he did not answer. …He is the God who avenges me, who puts the Gentiles under me.
…Therefore I will praise you among the Gentiles; I will sing hymns to your name."

[quoting Psalm 18:41-49]
for he will avenge the blood of his servants; he will take vengeance on his enemies and make atonement for his land and people.' "

[quoting Deuteronomy 32:43]

"...but the Samaritans did not receive Jesus...and when His disciples James and John saw it, they said...

'Lord, do you want us to command fire to come down from heaven and consume them as Elijah did?'

[referencing 2 Kings 1]
How Jesus Read His Bible
But Jesus turned and rebuked them and He said, 'You do not know what manner of spirit you are of! For the Son of Man came not to destroy people's lives but to save them.' "
Luke 9:51-56
God is light
there is absolutely no darkness in Him.
None at all.
