Who are they that are bound and what is the prison in Isaiah 61:1?


Isaiah 61:1 - 11

ESV - 1 The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound. 2 To proclaim the year of the Lord 's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn.

Great question, Bob Cline!
“If you have trusted Christ as your Savior, (you are living today in a spiritual ‘Year of Jubilee.’) You have been set free from bondage.” --Warren Wiersbe

Yes, YOU are the one who was bound, bound by sin and Satan. YOU have been set free from your BONDAGE TO SIN AND YOUR BONDAGE TO SATAN!

“He [Christ] comes the prisoners to release,
In Satan’s bondage held;
The gates of brass before Him burst,
The iron fetters yield.” --Philip Doddridge
