|Bible Question: what does it mean that a prophet is not without honor in his own house|
Bible Answer: Greetings yellow!
"13:57 A prophet...in his own country. This is an ancient proverb paralleling the modern saying, "familiarity breeds contempt." They knew Jesus too well as a boy and a young man from their own town- and they concluded that He was nothing special. Verse 58 gives the sad result (cf. Mark 6:4)."
