The Rejection of Jesus

Familiarity breeds contempt. Jesus was not well received in his home town, even from his own family. He shows his humility because he did not stick up for himself. There is no pride or selfishness in his response. There is a mystery about Jesus. From an unknown village would be the Messiah. Jesus is not “just one of us” like his hometown assumed. They should have bowed and worshiped him but they “took offense at him” MATT 13:57 Here we can also see the patience of Christ.
