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?
Isn’t this the carpenter?
Isn’t this Mary’s son
and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas and Simon?
Aren’t his sisters here with us?”
And they took offense at him.
Jesus said to them,
“A prophet is not without honor
except in his own town,
among his relatives and in his own home.”
