53 And        
  when Jesus had finished        
  these parables,        
  he went away from there 1 He went away from there    
54 and coming   and came 16 And he came
  to his own country   to his own country   to Nazareth where
          he had been brought up;
      and his disciples    
      followed him.    
    2 And on the sabbath*   and
  he taught them   he began to teach   he went
  in their synagogue,   in the synagogue;   to the synagogue,
          as was his custom,
          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."
  so that they   and many who heard him   and all spoke well of him
  were astonished,   were astonished,   and wondered
          at the gracious words
          which proceeded
          out of his mouth;
  and said,   saying,   and they said,
  "Where did this man get   "Where did this man get    
   [see Matt 13:56 below]   all this?*    
  this wisdom   What is the wisdom    
      given to him?    
  and these mighty works?"   What mighty works    
      are wrought by his hands?    
55 Is this not 3 Is this not   Is this not
  the carpenter 's son?*   the carpenter,   Joseph's son?"*
  Is not his mother   the son*    
  called Mary?   of Mary    
  And are not his brothers   and brother    
  James   of James    
  and Joseph   and Joses    
      and Judas*    
  and Simon   and Simon,    
  and Judas?*        
56 and are not all his sisters   and are not his sisters here    
  with us?"   with us?"    
  "Where did this man get   

 [see Mark 6:2 above]

  all this?*
