Matthew 13: 53-58
And when Jesus had finished these parables, he went away from there, and coming to his hometown he taught them in their synagogue, so that they were astonished, and said, "Where did this man get this wisdom and these mighty works? Is not this the carpenter's son? Is not his mother called Mary? And are not his brothers James and Joseph and Simon and Judas? And are not all his sisters with us? Where then did this man get all these things?" And they took offense at him. But Jesus said to them, "A prophet is not without honor except in his hometown and in his own household." And he did not do many mighty works there, because of their unbelief.
Why did Jesus grow up in Nazareth, but begin His ministry in Capernaum?
It really doesn't matter what authority you carry at your work or your school, your family and friends don't give you that same honor. When the people of Nazareth saw Jesus, they didn't see a teacher they just saw the carpenter's son.
