Central Passage
Luke 4: 21-30
Subject
Truly, I say to you, no prophet is acceptable in his hometown
Description

Quote to accompany the sermon

They said, “Isn’t this Joseph’s son?” But how does this diminish the glory of the Worker of the miracles. What prevents him from being both venerated and admired, even had he been, as was supposed, Joseph’ son?

He said that Elijah had been sent to a single widow and that the prophet Elisha had healed but one leper, Naaman the Syrian. By these he refers to the church of the gentiles, who were about to accept him and be healed of their leprosy.

~Cyril of Jerusalem, 375-444
