Matt 4   Mark 1  Luke 4
17 From that time        
  Jesus began to preach,        
  saying, 15 and saying,    
  "Repent,*   "The time is fulfilled,    
  for   and    
  the kingdom of heaven   the kingdom of God    
  is at hand."   is at hand;    
      and believe in the gospel."    
        16 And he came to Nazareth,
          where he had been brought up;
          and he went to the synagogue,
          as his custom was, on the sabbath day.
          And he stood up to read;
        17 and there was given to him
          the book of the prophet Isaiah.
          He opened the book
          and found the place
          where it was written,
        18 "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
          because he has anointed me
          to preach good news to the poor.
          He has sent me
          to proclaim release to the captives
          and recovering of sight to the blind,
          to set at liberty
          those who are oppressed,
        19 to proclaim
          the acceptable year of the Lord."
        20 And he closed the book,
          and gave it back to the attendant,
          and sat down;
          and the eyes of all in the synagogue
          were fixed on him.
        21 And he began to say to them,
          "Today this scripture has been fulfilled
          in your hearing."
        22 And all spoke well of him,
          and wondered at the gracious words
          which proceeded out of his mouth;
          and they said,

[see Matt 13:55]


[see Mark 6:3]

  "Is not this Joseph's son?"
        23 And he said to them,
          you will quote to me this proverb,
          `Physician, heal yourself;
          what we have heard you did 
          at Capernaum,
          do here also in your own country.'"

[see Matt 13:57]


[see Mark 6:4]

24 And he said,
          "Truly, I say to you,
          no prophet is acceptable
          in his own country.
        25 But in truth, I tell you,
          there were many widows in Israel
          in the days of Elijah,
          when the heaven was shut up
          three years and six months,
          when there came a great famine ;
          over all the land
        26 and Elijah was sent to none of them
          but only to Zarephath,
          in the land of Sidon,
          to a woman who was a widow.
        27 And there were many lepers in Israel
          in the time of the prophet Elisha;
          and none of them was cleansed,
          but only Naaman the Syrian."
        28 When they heard this,
          all in the synagogue were filled
          with wrath.
        29 And they rose up
          and put him out of the city,
          and led him to the brow of the hill
          on which their city was built,
          that they might throw him down
        30 But passing through the midst of them
          he went away.
