Passage: Matthew 13:53-58 (RSV)

Matthew 13

53And when Jesus had finished these parables, he went away from there,
54and coming to his own country he taught them in their synagogue, so that they were astonished, and said, "Where did this man get this wisdom and these mighty works?
55Is not this the carpenter's son? Is not his mother called Mary? And are not his brothers James and Joseph and Simon and Judas?
56And are not all his sisters with us? Where then did this man get all this?"
57And they took offense at him. But Jesus said to them, "A prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house."
58And he did not do many mighty works there, because of their unbelief.
