    SEV Biblia, Chapter 4:21

    Y comenz a decirles: Hoy se ha cumplido esta Escritura en vuestros oídos.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 21. And he began to say unto them , etc.] To
    preach from those words; the explanation of which he gave, though not here recorded, and applied them to himself, to whom they belonged, saying: this day is this Scripture fulfilled in your ears ; which is as if he should say, I am the person here spoken of; and at this present time the Spirit of God is upon me; I am anointed with the Holy Ghost, and now preach glad tidings to you, and all the good things here mentioned, and for the several ends proposed; and this Scripture has its full accomplishment which has been read unto you, and you have heard this day. So the Syriac version renders it, wkyndabd , which is in your ears; that is, which you have now heard.

    The Jews themselves acknowledge, that these words are spoken of the Messiah. One of their writers says, these are the words of the prophet with respect to the Messiah; for the Messiah shall say so, because the Lord hath anointed me, etc.

    And so said the true Messiah Jesus. Another of them expresses himself thus f226 : these are the words of the prophet with respect to the Messiah; for the Messiah shall say thus, because the Lord hath anointed me, etc. or they are the words of the prophet concerning himself.

    And elsewhere it is said by them f227 , the holy, blessed God, will send his Messiah to us, and he shall be worthy of this, (i.e. the character of a meek person) as it is said, ( Isaiah 61:1) he hath sent me to preach glad tidings to the meek. Ver. 22. And all bare him witness , etc.] That he was right in applying the words to the Messiah; but not that he himself was the Messiah, and that he was right in applying them to himself; for they did not believe in him, as appears from what follows and wondered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his mouth ; not so much at the matter, the sum, and substance of them, as expressive of the love, grace, and favour of God shown in the mission and unction of the Messiah, and in that liberty, deliverance, and salvation he was sent to effect and proclaim; as at the graceful manner in which he delivered himself, and the aptness of his words, the propriety of his diction, and the majesty, power, and authority, with which his expressions were clothed; and they were more amazed at all this, since they knew his parentage and education, and in what manner he had been brought up among them; and therefore it was astonishing to them, where he had his learning, knowledge, and wisdom: and they said, is not this Joseph's son? the carpenter, and who was brought up, by him, to his trade, and never learned letters; from whom had he this doctrine? of whom has he learned this way of address, and to speak with so much eloquence and propriety, since his education was mean, and he has never been at the feet of any of the doctors, or has been brought up in any of the academies and schools of learning?


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 14-30 - Christ taught in their synagogues, their places of public worship where they met to read, expound, and apply the word, to pray an praise. All the gifts and graces of the Spirit were upon him and of him, without measure. By Christ, sinners may be loosed from the bond of guilt, and by his Spirit and grace from the bondage of corruption He came by the word of his gospel, to bring light to those that sat in the dark, and by the power of his grace, to give sight to those tha were blind. And he preached the acceptable year of the Lord. Le sinners attend to the Saviour's invitation when liberty is thu proclaimed. Christ's name was Wonderful; in nothing was he more so tha in the word of his grace, and the power that went along with it. We ma well wonder that he should speak such words of grace to such graceles wretches as mankind. Some prejudice often furnishes an objectio against the humbling doctrine of the cross; and while it is the word of God that stirs up men's enmity, they will blame the conduct or manne of the speaker. The doctrine of God's sovereignty, his right to do his will, provokes proud men. They will not seek his favour in his own way and are angry when others have the favours they neglect. Still is Jesu rejected by multitudes who hear the same message from his words. Whil they crucify him afresh by their sins, may we honour him as the Son of God, the Saviour of men, and seek to show we do so by our obedience.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    21. He began. Not necessarily denoting his first
    words, but indicating a solemn and weighty opening.

    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    4:21 {And he began to say} (erxato de legein). Aorist ingressive
    active indicative and present infinitive. He began speaking. The moment of hushed expectancy was passed. These may or may not be the first words uttered here by Jesus. Often the first sentence is the crucial one in winning an audience. Certainly this is an arresting opening sentence. {Hath been fulfilled} (peplerwtai). Perfect passive indicative, {stands fulfilled}. "Today this scripture (#Isa 61:1,2, just read) stands fulfilled in your ears." It was a most amazing statement and the people of Nazareth were quick to see the Messianic claim involved. Jesus could only mean that the real year of Jubilee had come, that the Messianic prophecy of Isaiah had come true today, and that in him they saw the Messiah of prophecy. There are critics today who deny that Jesus claimed to be the Messiah. To be able to do that, they must reject the Gospel of John and all such passages as this one. And it is no apocalyptic eschatological Messiah whom Jesus here sets forth, but the one who forgives sin and binds up the broken-hearted. The words were too good to be true and to be spoken here at Nazareth by one of their own townsmen!
