Jesus left that part of the country and returned with his disciples to Nazareth, his hometown.
The next Sabbath he began teaching in the synagogue, and many who heard him were astonished. They asked, "Where did he get all his wisdom and the power to perform such miracles?
He's just the carpenter, the son of Mary and brother of James, Joseph, a Judas, and Simon. And his sisters live right here among us." They were deeply offended and refused to believe in him.
Then Jesus told them, "A prophet is honored everywhere except in his own hometown and among his relatives and his own family." 5
And because of their unbelief, he couldn't do any mighty miracles among them except to place his hands on a few sick people and heal them.
And he was amazed at their unbelief. Then Jesus went out from village to village, teaching.
