Jesus was rejected by His home town
When Jesus had finished telling these stories and illustrations, he left that part of the country. He returned to Nazareth, his hometown. When he taught there in the synagogue, everyone was amazed and said, “Where does he get this wisdom and the power to do miracles?” Then they scoffed, “He’s just the carpenter’s son, and we know Mary, his mother, and his brothers—James, Joseph, Simon, and Judas.
All his sisters live right here among us. Where did he learn all these things?” And they were deeply offended and refused to believe in him. - Matthew 13:53-57
“Do to others as you would like them to do to you.” Luke 6:31.
