Bible: Luke 4:21-29

4:21 Then 1  he began to tell them, “Today 2  this scripture has been fulfilled even as you heard it being read.” 3  4:22 All 4  were speaking well of him, and were amazed at the gracious words coming out of his mouth. They 5  said, “Isn’t this 6  Joseph’s son? 4:23 Jesus 7  said to them, “No doubt you will quote to me the proverb, ‘Physician, heal yourself!’ 8  and say, ‘What we have heard that you did in Capernaum, 9  do here in your hometown too.’ 4:24 And he added, 10 I tell you the truth, 11  no prophet is acceptable 12  in his hometown. 4:25 But in truth I tell you, there were many widows in Israel in Elijah’s days, 13  when the sky 14  was shut up three and a half years, and 15  there was a great famine over all the land. 4:26 Yet 16  Elijah was sent to none of them, but only to a woman who was a widow at Zarephath in Sidon. 17  4:27 And there were many lepers in Israel in the time of the prophet Elisha, 18  yet 19  none of them was cleansed except Naaman the Syrian.” 20  4:28 When they heard this, all the people 21  in the synagogue were filled with rage. 4:29 They got up, forced 22  him out of the town, 23  and brought him to the brow of the hill on which their town was built, so that 24  they could throw him down the cliff. 25
