Can any good thing come from Nazareth? That back water, that hole in the earth? Nazareth was on the "wrong side of the tracks." Nazareth was Jesus’ hometown, but they had already rejected Jesus. Near where I live is the "town" where Johnny Cash was born. Looking at the town, you would never guess someone famous had come from there; most of the roads are still unpaved, and it has all the characteristics of a red-neck town. But, Johnny cash really did live there as a boy! Jesus came from "nowhere." A modern man once asked "What does a dead Jew from Nazareth have to do with me, a 20th Century man?" More than you may think or desire!
