Isn't This Joseph's Son?

From Series: The Gospel According to Luke, Volume 2

Luke 4:14  (ID: 2091)

Before going to His death, Jesus had a single intent: to preach the message of the kingdom. Alistair Begg describes the tepid response Christ’s message received in His hometown of Nazareth. Though the people initially welcomed His words, they became indifferent when they realized He was Joseph’s son, just as “common” as they were. They wanted an exclusive kingdom with a distinguished King—and the son of Joseph didn’t meet their expectations.

Jesus Begins His Ministry

14And Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit to Galilee, and a report about him went out through all the surrounding country.
