The Gospel of Matthew, Day 38

Day 38 June 10
Reading: Matthew 13:53-58 NIV

53 When Jesus had finished these parables, he moved on from there.
 54 Coming to his hometown, he began teaching the people in their synagogue, and they were amazed. "Where did this man get this wisdom and these miraculous powers?" they asked.
 55 "Isn't this the carpenter's son? Isn't his mother's name Mary, and aren't his brothers James, Joseph, Simon and Judas? 56 Aren't all his sisters with us? Where then did this man get all these things?"
 57 And they took offense at him. But Jesus said to them, "A prophet is not without honor except in his own town and in his own home." 58 And he did not do many miracles there because of their lack of faith.

: Jesus was ridiculed in his own hometown for the way he lived, and the people questioned his wisdom and power. Should we also expect others to question the way we live as Christians?
