And they were doubtful

     But they’ve heard about what happened in Capernaum; what kind of miracles Jesus performed.  When He came back to Nazareth, they should have put up a triumphal gate for Him, they should have welcomed Him with flowers, delivered speeches, they should have paid homage to Him.
     But instead they reminded Him that He was a carpenter, not a teacher.  “Where did He get all this?  What is this wisdom that has been given to him?  What deeds of power are being done by his hands!  (…) Isn’t He Mary’s son; a brother of James and Joseph and Jude and Simon, aren’t His sisters still living in Nazareth?  And they were doubtful about Jesus”.
