Isaiah 61

Verse 2

acceptable year of the Lord

Observe that Jesus suspended the reading of this passage in the synagogue at Nazareth Luke 4:16-21 at the comma in the middle of Isaiah 61:2. The first advent, therefore, opened the day of grace, "the acceptable year of Jehovah," but does not fulfil the day of vengeance. That will be taken up when Messiah returns 2 Thessalonians 1:7-10 Cf. ; Isaiah 34:8; Isaiah 35:4-10. The last verse, taken with the 4th, gives the historic connection: the vengeance precedes the regathering of Israel, and synchronizes with the day of the Lord. ; Isaiah 2:10-22; Revelation 19:11-21; Isaiah 63:1-6.
