Bible: Mark 6:1-6

Rejection at Nazareth

6:1 Now 1  Jesus left that place and came to his hometown, 2  and his disciples followed him. 6:2 When the Sabbath came, he began to teach in the synagogue. 3  Many who heard him were astonished, saying, “Where did he get these ideas? 4  And what is this wisdom that has been given to him? What are these miracles that are done through his hands? 6:3 Isn’t this the carpenter, the son 5  of Mary 6  and brother of James, Joses, Judas, and Simon? And aren’t his sisters here with us?” And so they took offense at him. 6:4 Then 7  Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his hometown, and among his relatives, and in his own house.” 6:5 He was not able to do a miracle there, except to lay his hands on a few sick people and heal them. 6:6 And he was amazed because of their unbelief. Then 8  he went around among the villages and taught.
