Jesus Rejected at Nazareth

Mark 6

1 Then a He went out from there and came to His own country, and His disciples followed Him. 2 And when the Sabbath had come, He began to teach in the synagogue. And many hearing Him were b astonished, saying, c "Where did this Man get these things? And what wisdom is this which is given to Him, that such mighty works are performed by His hands! 3 "Is this not the carpenter, the Son of Mary, and d brother of James, Joses, Judas, and Simon? And are not His sisters here with us?" So they e were offended at Him. 4 But Jesus said to them, f "A prophet is not without honor except in his own country, among his own relatives, and in his own house." 5 g Now He could do no mighty work there, except that He laid His hands on a few sick people and healed them.

6 And h He marveled because of their unbelief. i Then He went about the villages in a circuit, teaching.
