Apr 24 6.41 Jesus and his disciples returned to his town Nazareth. The following Sabbath, he taught in the synagogue. Many astonished listeners asked, “What wisdom1 this is! Where does he get these things and the power he displays? Isnt this Marys2 son, the carpenter, brother of James, Joses, Judas and Simon? Arent his sisters here with us?” And they lost their faith in him.3 Jesus told them, “A prophet receives honor everywhere, except in his town,4 among his relatives, and in his home.” Except for a few sick whom he laid hands on and healed, he couldnt do great works there because of their unbelief, which surprised him.
