2 When the Sabbath came, He began ato teach in the synagogue; and the bmany listeners were astonished, saying, “Where did this man get these things, and what is this wisdom given to Him, and such 1miracles as these performed by His hands?

3 “Is not this athe carpenter, bthe son of Mary, and brother of 1James and Joses and Judas and Simon? Are not cHis sisters here with us?” And they took doffense at Him.

4 Jesus said to them, aA prophet is not without honor except in 1bhis hometown and among his own relatives and in his own household.”

5 And He could do no 1miracle there except that He alaid His hands on a few sick people and healed them.

6 And He wondered at their unbelief.

aAnd He was going around the villages teaching.

A star (*) is used to mark verbs that are historical presents in the Greek which have been translated with an English past tense in order to conform to modern usage. The translators recognized that in some contexts the present tense seems more unexpected and unjustified to the English reader than a past tense would have been. But Greek authors frequently used the present tense for the sake of heightened vividness, thereby transporting their readers in imagination to the actual scene at the time of occurence. However, the translators felt that it would be wise to change these historical presents to English past tenses.
