C. The Increase of Rejection
1. Rejection by His Countrymen
53 And when Jesus had finished these parables, He departed from there.
54 aAnd He came into His own country and taught them in their bsynagogue, so that they were castounded and said, Where did this man get this dwisdom and these works of power?
55 Is not this the 1carpenter's ason? Is not His bmother called Mary, and His cbrothers James and Joseph and Simon and Judas?
56 And His sisters, are they not all with us? Where then did this man get all these things?
57 And they were astumbled because of Him. But Jesus said to them, A bprophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house.
58 And He did 1not do many works of power there because of their unbelief.
