John the Baptist doubts

Jesus promised to set the captives free in Luke 4, as prophesied by Isaiah.  Why then had He not set His faithful servant John free?  Jesus sends back the message that it is not a literal fulfillment, but that he should note the dead are raised, the people reborn, and the ones who are not offended by Jesus are saved. 
John, like the rest of the Jews, were thinking physically about the ministry of Jesus, which wasn't the right idea at all.
