Those who heard him wondered what he was saying. This was a verse that only the Messiah would read. Was Jesus the long-awaited Messiah? For the rest of his ministry, there was controversy as to who Jesus was. Those who were healed by him said he had to be sent from God. Their reasoning was, who else could open blind eyes? Who else could make lame people walk? Who else could enable deaf people to hear? Only a person sent from God had the ability to do that. Others, the Pharisees and Sadducees, the religious leaders of the day, did not accept him. He did not fit in with their preconceived ideas. He did things like heal on the Sabbath day, thus upsetting their religious traditions.
