The Baptist Center for Ethics produced “The Nazareth Manifesto,” a 13-minute look at Jesus’ first public statement, as recorded in Luke 4. In that chapter, and verses 18 and 19 in particular, Jesus sets forth his agenda: good news to the poor, release to the captives, recovery of sight to the blind, freedom to the oppressed, and the year of jubilee. The DVD comes loaded with extras, including a segment on the “prosperity gospel” and readings of Luke 4 in both the King James and Cotton Patch versions.
DVD interviewees include:
* William Buchanan, pastor of Fifteenth Avenue Baptist Church in Nashville, Tenn
* Stephanie Buckhanon Crowder, assistant professor in the School of Religion at Belmont University
* Darrell Gwaltney, dean of the School of Religion at Belmont University
* Brent McDougal, coordinator of Alabama Cooperative Baptist Fellowship
* Bill Wilson, pastor of First Baptist Church in Dalton, Ga.
* Aidsand Wright-Riggins, executive director of National Ministries at American Baptist Churches-USA

This video was produced in preparation for the New Baptist Covenant meeting held in Atlanta in 2008. It is a wonderful resource for a Bible Study Group or Discussion Group.
