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