Q and A Examining the Word

I was going to write more about Luke 4:18 and Isaiah 61 today, but I wanted to try something a little different.  Here are the verses as they are in the King James. Read over them, and let’s compare and contrast them. You tell me what you see that is the same and what is different.
Luke 4:18 (KJV) The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, 19. To preach the acceptable year of the Lord. 
Isaiah 61:1-3 The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon me; because the LORD hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek; he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound; 2To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn; 3To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.

1.       Knowing Jesus did not read all of the passage, why do you think He stopped?
2.       Who comforts the mourning if it is not Jesus?
3.       How does the last portion of Isaiah apply to us as believers now?
Do these passages bring any questions up for you? Put your comments below and lets discuss.
Remember, faith takes work, and work is a verb! Let’s get to it:
