A Prophet Without Honor 1Jesus left there and went to his hometown, accompanied by his disciples.

2When the Sabbath came, he began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him were amazed. “Where did this man get these things?” they asked. “What’s this wisdom that has been given him? What are these remarkable miracles he is performing?

3Isn’t this the carpenter? Isn’t this Mary’s son and the brother of James, Joseph, Greek Joses, a variant of Joseph Judas and Simon? Aren’t his sisters here with us?” And they took offense at him. 4Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own town, among his relatives and in his own home.” 5He could not do any miracles there, except lay his hands on a few sick people and heal them.

6He was amazed at their lack of faith. Jesus Sends Out the Twelve 6Then Jesus went around teaching from village to village.
