This Sunday is a continuation of the Gospel of Luke, Chapter 4. Last week Jesus proclaimed the following: “Today this Scripture passage is fulfilled in your hearing.”
Those in the synagogue spoke highly of him and were amazed at the gracious words that came from his mouth, but they also asked, “Isn’t this the son of Joseph?”
Jesus said to them, “Surely you will quote me this proverb, ‘Physician, cure yourself,’ and say, ‘Do here in your native place the things that we heard were done in Capernaum.’”Jesus also responded, “Amen, I say to you, no prophet is accepted in his own native place.
Those in the synagogue were angry when they heard this. They wanted to see the miracles and signs He had worked in other towns. They rose up, drove him out of the town, and led him to the brow of the hillon which their town had been built, to hurl him down headlong.
But Jesus passed through the midst of them and went away.
