The Spirit of the Lord Has Come Upon Me (Isa. 60:1; Luke 4:19,20; LD 20) | 2006-2007 Catechism Sermons

Jul 27, 2007

Lord’s day 20 of the Heidelberg Catechism continues with the Apostles Creed. The catechism looks at the third person of the trinity, who is the Holy Spirit. We know that the Spirit is eternal God, and at the same time has work in history. We seek to establish this by looking at Isaiah 61 and Luke 4. Christ takes the words of the prophet Isaiah upon Himself, but he never mentions judgment. How is the Spirit significant in these passages, and why does Christ skip Isaiah’s the declared judgment? Please stay tuned as we hear, “The Spirit of the Lord has Come upon Me.”
