Jesus’ Public Ministry

14 And (A)Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit, and (B)news about Him spread through all the surrounding region. 15 And He began (C)teaching in their synagogues and was praised by all.

16 And He came to (D)Nazareth, where He had been brought up; and as was His custom, (E)He entered the synagogue on the Sabbath, and (F)stood up to read. 17 And the scroll of Isaiah the prophet was handed to Him. And He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written:

18 (G)The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me,
Because He anointed Me to bring good news to the poor.
He has sent Me to proclaim release to captives,
And recovery of sight to the blind,
To set free those who are oppressed,
19 (H)To proclaim the favorable year of the Lord.”

20 And He (I)rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant, and (J)sat down; and the eyes of all the people in the synagogue were intently directed at Him. 21 Now He began to say to them, “Today this Scripture has been fulfilled in your [a]hearing.”
