Bible: Luke 4:22-30

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. 4:29 They got up, forced 19  him out of the town, 20  and brought him to the brow of the hill on which their town was built, so that 21  they could throw him down the cliff. 22  4:30 But he passed through the crowd 23  and went on his way. 24
