Luke 4:28-29 ” All the people in the Synagogue were furious when they heard this. They got up, drove Him out of the town, and took Him to the brow of the hill on which the town was built, in order to throw Him down the cliff. But He walked right through the crowd and went on His way.”

Jesus was back in His hometown of Nazareth…the place where He had been brought up, and where everyone knew Him and His family.  We find Him on the Sabbath in the Synagogue where someone handed Him the scroll of Isaiah to read from.  He read from Isaiah 61:1-2 …( Which was Jesus’ exact job description here on earth) and then sat down.  Everyone spoke well of Him until He uttered 8 words, “Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.”  No wonder the people were furious!  All they could see was Mary and Joseph’s little boy…and now He’s daring to claim to be the Messiah!  Their minds refused to believe…their hearts were hardened by pride…their eyes were blinded to His Deity.  Their long-awaited Messiah had come and was in their midst…yet they rejected Him.
