Why did Jesus read these specific verses from Isaiah when he spoke in the synagogue and why did he stop in the middle of second verse?

Isaiah 61:1-2: The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed. To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD.

Luke 4:18 - 19

NKJV - 18 The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed. 19 To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD.
