Matthew 13:54

Context
13:54 Then 1  he came to his hometown 2  and began to teach the people 3  in their synagogue. 4  They 5  were astonished and said, “Where did this man get such wisdom and miraculous powers?

Matthew 13:57

Context
13:57 And so they took offense at him. But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his hometown and in his own house.”

1 tn Here καί (kai) has been translated as “Then.”

2 sn Jesus’ hometown (where he spent his childhood years) was Nazareth, about 20 miles (30 km) southwest of Capernaum.

3 tn Grk “them”; the referent (the people) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

4 sn See the note on synagogues in 4:23. Jesus undoubtedly took the opportunity on this occasion to speak about his person and mission, and the relation of both to OT fulfillment.

5 tn Grk “synagogue, so that they.” Here ὥστε (Jwste) has not been translated. Instead a new sentence was started in the translation.
