Representative academic and popular publications:
17 And the scroll of the prophet Isaiah
was given to him. He unrolled the scroll
and found the place
where it was written,
18 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
because he has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim
liberty to the captives
and recovering of sight to the blind,
to set at liberty those
who are oppressed,
19 to proclaim the year of
the Lord's favor.”
20 And he rolled up the scroll
and gave it back
to the attendant and sat down.
And the eyes
of all in the synagogue were
fixed on him.
21 And he began to say to them, “Today this
Scripture has been fulfilled
in your hearing.”
