The incident when Jesus was rejected at Nazareth (Luke 4: 16-30)
Jesus came to Nazareth where he had been brought up.
He went into synagogue as he usually did on the Sabbath day.
He was given the book of prophet Isaiah when he stood up to read.
He opened the book and found the place that was written about him and
read it to the people.
After reading, he closed the book, gave it to the attendant and sat down.
Everybody in the synagogue looked at him
He told them that the scripture he had read was fulfilled in their hearing.
All people were happy with what he had spoken.
People wondered aloud saying, “is this not Joseph’s son?”
Jesus told them that they would ask him to do own country things he had
done in Capernaum/he told them that a prophet is into accepted in his own
He told them there were many widows in Israel during the time of Elijah
but God sent the prophet to widow in Zarephath.
