The sermon also draws attention to Jesus’ ministry to the poor, using Luke 4:18 to demonstrate the validation of His mission through serving the less privileged.

The message further explores the concept that the family of God is comprised of the weak and foolish, as stated by Jesus in Matthew 11:25–26. Additionally, it defines national Israel as poor, using a passage that speaks about the restoration of Judah and Jerusalem and God’s judgment on those who have mistreated His people.
