MRBC Sunday Service 19th July 2020

Some of you had problems receiving the service last week because of issues with AVG or Avast virus checkers. We would confirm that the problem wasn’t on our end and we have been assured that it has been resolved. Please let us know if you encounter any problems today. The video can also be viewed directly on YouTube https://youtu.be/jvQlJmGx4W8 .

For Reflection and Discussion

Read Leviticus 25:8-17, Isaiah 61:1-3 and Luke 4:18-19

  1. What was it about Jubilee, do you think, that caused it to apparently be never observed?   What advantages did it have for society if it had been observed?
  2. In Isaiah we see all the essential elements of Jubilee.  How does what is promised differ from the laws of Leviticus 25?
  3. Jesus showed how the prophecy of Isaiah can be looked at in a spiritual as well as a literal way.   How do you think that helps is in how we reflect Jesus in the post Coronavirus world?   To help you reflect on this you may want to look again at Mark’s closing points in his talk.
