Thanks, that is very interesting indeed.  As to the question as to who  
opened Isaiah 61 for Jesus' reading in the synagogue, Luke 4:14, 17 indicates  that 
it was Jesus himself:
 
IHSOUS... ANOIZAS TO BIBLION hEUPEN TON TOPON OU HN GEGRAMMENON...
Hebrew versions:
yeshua...patach et hamegillah umatsa et ha-maqom shekatuv... (UBS, 1983,  
Israel).  
yeshua... yiftach et ha-sepher wa yimtsa et ha-maqom asher hayah  katuv..(  
Delitzsch, 19th cent.).

this  particular passage: Does Jesus open it at that specific point
or does the  hazan (cantor), who was in charge at the synagogue,
deliberately open it at  this chapter? .....
