The Prophet Isaiah wrote around 700 B.C.E in chapter 61:1 that the Messiah would come and bring the good news of redemption was going to be presented to the poor and this gospel would be GOOD NEWS for those needing redemption in its myriad forms. It was within this strata of society that Jesus recognized their great need of redemption.  Jesus said, “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he (Jehovah God) has anointed me to preach good news to the poor.”
