Jesus Rejected at Nazareth
A prophet is not welcome in his hometown. I've wondered about this often. Why is he not welcome? Is it because of verse 3? Because they knew Jesus when he was a kid? Because of what they thought of his birth?
Shortsighted people missed out on what could've been the biggest blessing of their lives, because they couldn't get over the fact that they knew Jesus when he was a baby. Because they knew his parents and brothers and sisters.
There are many things today that keep us from accepting Jesus. The world around us does its best to discredit him.
Let's have better vision than those from Nazareth.
