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.
