When Jesus finished telling these parables, he left that place
and went back to his hometown. He taught in the synagogue, and those who heard him were amazed. "Where did he get such wisdom?" they asked. "And what about his miracles?
Isn't he the carpenter's son? Isn't Mary his mother, and aren't James, Joseph, Simon, and Judas his brothers?
Aren't all his sisters living here? Where did he get all this?"
And so they rejected him. 1 Jesus said to them, "A prophet is respected everywhere except in his hometown and by his own family."
Because they did not have faith, he did not perform many miracles there.
