THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
A prophet is never welcome in his home town. This familiar saying
paraphrases the words of Jesus in today’s Gospel: "I tell you solemnly,
no prophet is ever accepted in his own country."
We might find ourselves sympathising with Jesus on this front: that
feelings that no what we have done in our adult life, in our homeplace
we are still identified with the child we were or the family we came
from. Sadly there are some who seems to delight in taking other down a
peg or two and ensuring they don’t get ideas "above their station."
Perhaps we ourselves have this tendency sometimes. We can be guilty
of pigeonholing people, of silencing their voices because their mes-sage
comes in the wrong package. We don’t al-ways recognise the prophets
among us. Do we listen to young people’s opinions? Do we dismiss the
experience and wisdom of elderly people? Are we biased against certain
groups of people or do we shoot people down before they even speak, just
because wee have disagreed with something they said in the past?
Jesus, the carpenter’s son, faces this attitude in today’s Gospel.
Returning home to Nazareth he impresses his former neighbours at first
with his preaching. But as soon as he challenges then, they turn on him.
They refuse to listen to his message of hope and inclusion. They hustle
him out of town and attempt to throw him from a cliff. "Joseph’s son"
should not be speaking to them in this manner. Joseph’s son should know
