Bible: Luke 4:16-22

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

to set free 16  those who are oppressed, 17 

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

4:20 Then 20  he rolled up 21  the scroll, gave it back to the attendant, and sat down. The eyes of everyone in the synagogue were fixed on 22  him. 4:21 Then 23  he began to tell them, “Today 24  this scripture has been fulfilled even as you heard it being read.” 25  4:22 All 26  were speaking well of him, and were amazed at the gracious words coming out of his mouth. They 27  said, “Isn’t this 28  Joseph’s son?
