Did those in the synagogue know that it was the Son of God was teaching them?
Bible Answer: Hi terrib, Those in the synagogue did not know that it was the Son of God that was teaching them because they were "offended in him" as your KJV reads.
The NASB reads for Matthew 13:57, "And they took offense at Him." The Greek gives the idea that they stumbled over Him; there was a snare in the way. They stumbled over how this Man got this wisdom and these miraculous powers.
What I would hope for you is that you capitalize in your mind at least the pronouns in this passage and know that He is the Son of God.
I would hope that you are looking for the Teacher [sic] in your life. Look at Matthew 23:8 and whether it is the KJV's "Master" or the NASB's "Teacher" and Leader, let this One be your guide.
Matthew 13:57, "And they took offense at Him/."
Mark 6:3, "...And they took offense at Him/."
John 6:45, "It is written in the prophets, 'And they shall be taught of God/.' Everyone who has heard and learned from the Father, comes to Me."
