The scroll of the prophet Isaiah was handed to him. Unrolling it, he found the place where it is written:
"The Spirit of the Lord is on me,1 because he has anointed me to preach good news2 to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed,
to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor."3
Then he rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant and sat down.4 The eyes of everyone in the synagogue were fastened on him,
and he began by saying to them, "Today this scripture is fulfilled5 in your hearing."
