6 Then aHe went out from there and came to His own country, and His disciples followed Him. 2 And when the Sabbath had come, He began to teach in the synagogue. And many hearing Him were bastonished, saying, c“Where did this Man get these things? And what wisdom is this which is given to Him, that such mighty works are performed by His hands! 3 Is this not the carpenter, the Son of Mary, and dbrother of James, Joses, Judas, and Simon? And are not His sisters here with us?” So they ewere offended at Him.
4 But Jesus said to them, f“A prophet is not without honor except in his own country, among his own relatives, and in his own house.” 5 gNow He could do no mighty work there, except that He laid His hands on a few sick people and healed them. 6 And hHe marveled because of their unbelief. iThen He went about the villages in a circuit, teaching.
About The New King James Version
The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
