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 gos-

pel 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; to

preach the acceptable year of the Lord. And he closed the

book, and he gave it again to the minister, and sat down.

And the eyes of all them that were in the synagogue were

fastened on him. And he began to say unto them, this

day is this Scripture fulfilled in your ears. And all bear

him witness, and wondered at the gracious words which

proceeded out of his mouth.

LECTURE XIII.

HISTORY OF JESUS CHRIST.

Luke iv. 20, 32.-And he closed the book, and he gave it

again to the minister, and sat down. And the eyes of all

them that were in the synagogue were fastened on him.

And he began to say unto them, this day is this Scripture

fulfilled in your ears. And all bare him witness, and won-

dered at the gracious words which proceeded out of his

mouth. And they said, is not this Joseph's son? And

he said unto them, ye will surely say unto me this

proverb, physician, heal thyself: whatsoever we have

heard done in Capernaum, do also here in thy country.

And he said, verily I say unto you, no prophet is

accepted in his own country. But I tell you of a

truth, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elias,

when the heaven was shut up three years and six months,

when great famine was throughout all the land; but unto

none of them was Elias sent, save unto Sarepta, a city of

Sidon, unto a woman that was a widow. And many lepers

were in Israel in the time of Eliseus the prophet; and

none of them was cleansed, saving Naaman the Syrian.

And all they in the synagogue, when they heard these

things, were filled with wrath, and rose up and thrust him

out of the city, and led him unto the brow of the hill,

whereon their city was built, that they might cast him

down headlong. But he, passing through the midst of

them, went his way, and came down to Capernaum, a city

of Galilee, and taught them on the Sabbath days. And

they were astonished at his doctrine: for his word was

with power.
