The Home Crowd

When Jesus makes his way back to his home town they are amazed and offended and consequently Jesus could do no act of power among them. They recognised Jesus in terms of his family ties but not in terms of his identity as a wisdom teacher or powerful healer and certainly not as Messiah. Why would those who knew Jesus best be the least receptive to him? (RCL Ezekiel 2; Psalm 123; 2 Corinthians 12:2-10; and Mark 6:1-13)
