Bible: Luke 4:16-19

Rejection at Nazareth

4:16 Now 1  Jesus 2  came to Nazareth, 3  where he had been brought up, and went into the synagogue 4  on the Sabbath day, as was his custom. 5  He 6  stood up to read, 7  4:17 and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him. He 8  unrolled 9  the scroll and found the place where it was written,

4:18The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,

because he has anointed 10  me to proclaim good news 11  to the poor. 12 

He has sent me 13  to proclaim release 14  to the captives

and the regaining of sight 15  to the blind,

to set free 16  those who are oppressed, 17 

4:19 to proclaim the year 18  of the Lord’s favor.” 19
