The scroll of Isaiah the prophet was handed to Him.
He unrolled the scroll and found the place where this was written:

"The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released,
that the blind will see,
that the oppressed will be set free,
and that the time of Lord's favour has come"

He rolled up the scroll, handed it back to the attendant and sat down.
All eyes in the synagogue looked at Him intently.
Then He began to speak to them 
"The scripture you have just heard has been fullfilled this
very day!"

Luke 4:17-21
