4:17 The book of the prophet Isaiah was handed to him. He opened the book, and found the place where it was written,
4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is on me, Because he anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim release to the captives, Recovering of sight to the blind, To deliver those who are crushed,
4:19 And to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord."
4:20 He closed the book, gave it back to the attendant, and sat down. The eyes of all in the synagogue were fastened on him.
4:21 He began to tell them, "Today, this scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing."

4:23 He said to them, "Doubtless you will tell me this parable, `Physician, heal yourself. Whatever we have heard done at Capernaum, do also here in your hometown.`"
4:24 He said, "Most assuredly I tell you, no prophet is acceptable in his hometown.

4:35 Jesus rebuked him, saying, "Be silent, and come out of him!" When the demon had thrown him down in their midst, he came out of him, having done him no harm.
4:36 Amazement came on all, and they spoke together, one with another, saying, "What is this word? For with authority and power he commands the unclean spirits, and they come out!"
4:37 News about him went forth into every place of the surrounding region.
4:38 He rose up from the synagogue, and entered into Simon`s house. Simon`s mother-in-law was afflicted with a great fever, and they begged him for her.
4:41 Demons also came out from many, crying out, and saying, "You are the Christ, the Son of God!" Rebuking them, he didn`t allow them to speak, because they knew that he was the Christ.
4:43 But he said to them, "I must preach the good news of the kingdom of God to the other cities also; for this reason I have been sent."
