Bible: Matthew 13:53-58
Rejection at Nazareth
13:53 Now when 1 Jesus finished these parables, he moved on from there. 13:54 Then 2 he came to his hometown 3 and began to teach the people 4 in their synagogue. 5 They 6 were astonished and said, “Where did this man get such wisdom and miraculous powers? 13:55 Isn’t this the carpenter’s son? Isn’t his mother named Mary? 7 And aren’t his brothers James, Joseph, Simon, and Judas? 13:56 And aren’t all his sisters here with us? Where did he get all this?” 8 13:57 And so they took offense at him. But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his hometown and in his own house.” 13:58 And he did not do many miracles there because of their unbelief.
