When the Sabbath came, He began 3to teach in the synagogue; and the 4many listeners were astonished, saying, "Where did this man get these things, and what is this wisdom given to Him, and such miracles as these performed by His hands?
"Is not this 5the carpenter, 6the son of Mary, and brother of James and Joses and Judas and Simon? Are not 7His sisters here with us?" And they took 8offense at Him.
Jesus said to them, "9A prophet is not without honor except in 10his hometown and among his own relatives and in his own household."
And He could do no miracle there except that He 11laid His hands on a few sick people and healed them.
And He wondered at their unbelief. 12And He was going around the villages teaching.
