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.
