Luke the Evangelist presents the story where Jesus reads an excerpt from the Book of Isaiah in in the synagogue of Nazareth of Galilee on Saturday. The verses 4:18-19 of the Gospel according to Luke read: "The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor. " (cf. Is 61:1-2). Isaiah prophesies about Messiah, while the Jews didn't accept Jesus was the Messiah and even wanted to kill Him by throwing Him off the cliff.
