When Jesus was done telling these parables,
he then left that part of the country.
He returned to Nazareth, his hometown.
As Jesus was teaching to the crowd in the synagogue,
the people were amazed and said,
"Where does he get his wisdom and his miracles?
He's just a carpenter's son,
and we know Mary, his mother, and his brothers.
What makes him so special and great?"
The people were offended and rejected Jesus and his teachings.
Then Jesus told them,
"A prophet is honored everywhere except in his own hometown
and among his own family."
Jesus did only a few miracles there
because of their unbelief.
