What application did Jesus make of this prophecy?


"And He came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up: and, as His custom was, He went into the
synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up for to read. And there was delivered unto Him the book of the
prophet Esaias. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written, The Spirit of
the Lord is upon Me, because He hath anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He hath sent Me to
heal the broken-hearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at
liberty them that are bruised. . . . And He began to say unto them, This day is this scripture fulfilled in your
ears." Luke 4: 16-21. See Luke 7: 19-22.
