Rejection at Nazareth
4:16 Now 12 Jesus 13 came to Nazareth, 14 where he had been brought up, and went into the synagogue 15 on the Sabbath day, as was his custom. 16 He 17 stood up to read, 18 4:17 and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him. He 19 unrolled 20 the scroll and found the place where it was written,
4:18 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
and the regaining of sight 26 to the blind,
4:20 Then 31 he rolled up 32 the scroll, gave it back to the attendant, and sat down. The eyes of everyone in the synagogue were fixed on 33 him. 4:21 Then 34 he began to tell them, “Today 35 this scripture has been fulfilled even as you heard it being read.” 36
