When he was come into his own country, he taught them in their synagogue (Matt. 13:54)
The Greek word here referred to as the Master's "own country" is patris, which has a double meaning, describing either one's native country or one's native town or city. Strictly, of course, "Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judæa" (Matt. 2:1); although apparently the greater part of his early life was spent in Nazareth, in the northern province of Galilee. It is evident that the synagogue mentioned in Matthew 13:54 was that of Nazareth itself. The New English Bible reads, "Jesus . . . came to his home town, where he taught the people in their synagogue."
A God of truth (Deut. 32:4)
