When Jesus read out of Isaiah 61 at the start of his public ministry, he marked the beginning of a new era: “the acceptable year of the Lord” (Luke 4:19), or as some translations put it: “the year of the Lord’s favor” (ESV). I particularly like how the Amplified Version fleshes out the meaning of this passage more richly:

The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me (the Messiah),
Because He has anointed Me to preach the good news to the poor.
He has sent Me to announce release (pardon, forgiveness) to the captives,
And recovery of sight to the blind,
To set free those who are oppressed (downtrodden, bruised, crushed by tragedy),
to proclaim the favorable year of the Lord [the day when salvation and the favor of God abound greatly]. (Luke 4:18-19, AMP)

In this era, salvation and favor abound greatly.

Throughout scripture, favor is one of the signature trademarks of the people of God. Time and again, stories chronicle seemingly ordinary people being placed in extraordinary positions of power and influence because of the favor of God upon their lives. Such stories illustrate that “with God nothing will be impossible” (Luke 1:37).

The first account of incredible favor in scripture is the story of Joseph.
