The spirit of the Lord is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me; he has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty of the captives, and release to the prisoners; to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor…
-- Isaiah 61: 1-2


Isaiah offers the most poetic articulation of Jubilee – it’s almost hard to remember that this is a concrete economic policy he’s declaring! But what better news is there for the poor than that your debts have been cancelled? Or that the prison doors will open and you can go home? Or that you will at last be comforted? The best news rights the wrongs that imprison you; the best news changes your actual life.
