Jesus Rejected at Nazareth

1 1He went away from there and came to 2his hometown, and his disciples followed him.
2 And 3on the Sabbath he began to teach in the synagogue, and 4many who heard him were astonished, saying, "Where did this man get these things? What is the wisdom given to him? How are such mighty works done by his hands?
3 5Is not this 6the carpenter, the son of Mary and 7brother of James and Joses and Judas and Simon? And are not his sisters here with us?" And 8they took offense at him.
4 And Jesus said to them, 9"A prophet is not without honor, except in his hometown and among his relatives and in his own household."

6 And 12he marveled because of their unbelief. 13And he went about among the villages teaching.
