The Manifesto of the Messiah
Jesus proclaims His mission in Luke four, proves it in chapter five, and practices His mission in the rest of the book. Jesus continuously taught and trained His disciples, challenging others to become partners with Him in His mission. The first example was his recruiting Simon Peter to follow and become a "fisher of men." Jesus demonstrated His mission in three parables: a shepherd seeks his lost sheep, a woman seeks a lost coin, and a father seeks a lost son.
