4:14 Then 1 Jesus, in the power of the Spirit, 2 returned to Galilee, and news about him spread 3 throughout the surrounding countryside. 4 4:15 He 5 began to teach 6 in their synagogues 7 and was praised 8 by all.
Rejection at Nazareth
4:16 Now 9 Jesus 10 came to Nazareth, 11 where he had been brought up, and went into the synagogue 12 on the Sabbath day, as was his custom. 13 He 14 stood up to read, 15 4:17 and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him. He 16 unrolled 17 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 23 to the blind,
4:20 Then 28 he rolled up 29 the scroll, gave it back to the attendant, and sat down. The eyes of everyone in the synagogue were fixed on 30 him. 4:21 Then 31 he began to tell them, “Today 32 this scripture has been fulfilled even as you heard it being read.” 33
