Jesus Rejected at Nazareth(A)

53 Now it came to pass, when Jesus had finished these parables, that He departed from there. 54 (B)When He had come to His own country, He taught them in their synagogue, so that they were astonished and said, “Where did this Man get this wisdom and these mighty works? 55 (C)Is this not the carpenter’s son? Is not His mother called Mary? And (D)His brothers (E)James, [a]Joses, Simon, and Judas? 56 And His sisters, are they not all with us? Where then did this Man get all these things?” 57 So they (F)were offended at Him.

But Jesus said to them, (G)“A prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house.” 58 Now (H)He did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief.

Jesus Rejected at Nazareth(A)

16 So He came to (B)Nazareth, where He had been brought up. And as His custom was, (C)He went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up to read. 17 And He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written:

18 “The(D) Spirit of the Lord is upon Me,
Because He has anointed Me
To preach the gospel to the poor;
He has sent Me [a]to heal the brokenhearted,
To proclaim liberty to the captives
And recovery of sight to the blind,
To (E)set at liberty those who are [b]oppressed;
19 To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.”

20 Then He closed the book, and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all who were in the synagogue were fixed on Him. 21 And He began to say to them, “Today this Scripture is (F)fulfilled in your hearing.” 22 So all bore witness to Him, and (G)marveled at the gracious words which proceeded out of His mouth. And they said, (H)“Is this not Joseph’s son?”

23 He said to them, “You will surely say this proverb to Me, ‘Physician, heal yourself! Whatever we have heard done in (I)Capernaum,[c] do also here in (J)Your country.’ ” 24 Then He said, “Assuredly, I say to you, no (K)prophet is accepted in his own country. 25 But I tell you truly, (L)many widows were in Israel in the days of Elijah, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, and there was a great famine throughout all the land; 26 but to none of them was Elijah sent except to [d]Zarephath, in the region of Sidon, to a woman who was a widow. 27 (M)And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Elisha the prophet, and none of them was cleansed except Naaman the Syrian.”

28 So all those in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were (N)filled with [e]wrath, 29 (O)and rose up and thrust Him out of the city; and they led Him to the brow of the hill on which their city was built, that they might throw Him down over the cliff. 30 Then (P)passing through the midst of them, He went His way.
