Bible Question: July 8, 2018

Fourteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

Mark 6:1-6
 
Why do you think “lack of faith” would interfere with Jesus being able to perform mighty deeds in a place?  
 
What was the main theme of the homily shared at Mass this weekend?
 
 
Gospel                             Mark 6:1-6
 
Jesus departed from there and came to his native place, accompanied by his disciples.
When the sabbath came he began to teach in the synagogue,
and many who heard him were astonished.
They said, “Where did this man get all this?
What kind of wisdom has been given him?
What mighty deeds are wrought by his hands!
Is he not the carpenter, the son of Mary,
and the brother of James and Joses and Judas and Simon?
And are not his sisters here with us?”
And they took offense at him.
Jesus said to them,
“A prophet is not without honor except in his native place
and among his own kin and in his own house.”
So he was not able to perform any mighty deed there,
apart from curing a few sick people by laying his hands on them.
He was amazed at their lack of faith.
