A Prophet Without Honor Explained
A Prophet is Not Without Honor Bible Verse
Let us return to our a Prophet is Not Without Honor adventure and
pick up where we dropped off. When Jesus returned from the wilderness
by the strength of the Holy Spirit after being tempted for all that
time, He went into Galilee and His fame spread throughout all the
land. He taught in their synagogues and all the people glorified Him.
This fulfills the prophecy of Isaiah
9:1 and Deuteronomy
Now, after this ... Jesus decided to head to His earthly home to do
some of God's work. But, something odd happened when He arrived.
Let's read about it, shall we?
54 And when he was come into his own country, he taught
them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and
said, Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works?
55 Is not this the carpenter's son? is not his mother
called Mary? and his brethren, James, and Joses, and Simon, and Judas?
56 And his sisters, are they not all with us? Whence then
hath this man all these things?
57 And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them,
A prophet is not without honor, save in his own country, and in
his own house.
58 And He did not many mighty works there because of their
As we head forward into our ... Prophet Without Honor Bible verse
voyage, let's take a look at the Scripture that Jesus was reading
which was from the Book of Isaiah who was a Prophet from hundreds of
years earlier. The prophecy that Jesus was reading was predicting the
Messiah's arrival. Jesus was trying to explain ... The Messiah was
there before them at that moment. It was Him !!! Here is the
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because He has anointed me to
preach the gospel to the poor, heal the brokenhearted, to preach
deliverance to the captives, recovering of sight to the blind, to set
at liberty them that are bruised, and to preach the acceptable year
of the Lord.
A Prophet Without Honor Bible Verse Woe
A Prophet is Not Without Honor Warning
Now, before we sojourn any deeper into the, a Prophet is not without
honor Bible story, I would like to research this a little deeper as
to fully understand Jesus' point that He was making which His home
town people ... Just could never believe. I will paraphrase a bit,
but the actual Scriptures are provided throughout this Prophet
without honor Bible verse exploration.
As you can imagine, everyone was staring at Jesus after He quoted
what He had read. He then tells the people "Today, this Scripture is
fulfilled in your ears" ... Again, this meant that what Jesus had
just read, was happening to them right then and right there and that
it was He, who Isaiah was talking about in that Scripture. I bet you
could have heard a pin drop there for a few seconds as they absorbed
what Jesus meant.
They became outraged as the doubt and then chaos increased. They did
not believe Jesus and they said to one another, Isn't this Joseph's
son? They doubted that He could be who He said that He was because
they knew Him as a child growing up there. He was from their own
town. They knew His parents. This just could not be. Though the Bible
Prophecy before Jesus arrived was clear that the Messiah would be one
among the people. Someone from their own home country:
The Lord thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of
thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto Him ye shall hearken;
Their response is exactly what, A prophet is not without honor
(Meaning that the Prophet does receive honor) EXCEPT from those who
believe that they know Him. Including in His own family.
Jesus said, Truly I say to you, No prophet is believed in His own
country. But, I will tell you the truth, many widows were in Israel in
the days of Elijah
when it did not rain for 3½ years and
great famine swept the land, but Elijah was only sent to one widow,
in Sidon. And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Elisha
the prophet, but none of them were cleansed, except Naaman, the Syrian.
A Prophet Without Honor Summary
A Prophet is Not Without Honor Meaning
When the people in the synagogue heard this, they were upset, to say
the least. They got up and threw Jesus out of the city and led Him to
the edge of the hill that Nazareth was built on so they could push
Him off. However, Jesus escaped and went His way.
What was Jesus telling those people from His home town in this, a
Prophet is not without honor Bible verse? Here is a Prophet is not
without honor tidbit of Truth ... Someone once said it this way:
Why is it that people praise dead saints but persecute the living
ones? People find it hard to believe that prophets exist in
modern times, but ask yourself this. When do you think God stopped
making prophets? Are there Modern
Maybe there's one in your own home country, but you just find it hard
to believe because after all, it couldn't possibly be. A Prophet is
not without honor Bible verse says that it is just the way it is.
Remember ... "A prophet is not without honor, save in his own
country, and among his own kin, and in his own house." Maybe you are
experiencing something like this in your life. Maybe God has called
you to serve Him, but those around you (family and friends) just
can't believe that you could ever be called to share God's Truth
because after all, they know you. Well now, this brings a couple of
questions to mind and heart ...
Did they really know Jesus?
Do they really know the renewed you?
Think about it. The definition of the prophet without honor Bible
Scripture which says that a prophet is not without honor save in his
own country means that a person's gifts and talents are rarely
appreciated by those close to them. In particular family.
This a Prophet Without Honor Bible investigation of the absolutely
awesome ... A Prophet is not without honor Bible verse confirms that
those who think they know you because of your past choices and assume
that you are the same now, after you became a Christian, do not know
the renewed you and few would or could believe that you could be
anything special to God.
But, remember ... "A Prophet is not without honor, save in his own
country, and among his own kin, and in his own house" ... They did
not believe Jesus Himself either, so you are in excellent company as
you sojourn along your BE-YOU-tiful Christian walk.
