“And he said, Verily I say unto you, No prophet is accepted in his own country.”
King James Version (KJV)
4:24 No prophet is acceptable in his own country - That is, in his own neighbourhood. It generally holds, that a teacher sent from God is not so acceptable to his neighbours as he is to strangers. The meanness of his family, or lowness of his circumstances, bring his office into contempt: nor can they suffer that he, who was before equal with, or below themselves, should now bear a superior character.
Lu 4:24 Verily I say unto you. See PNT "Mt 5:18. This expression occurs eight times in Luke. No prophet is accepted in his own country. He replied to their proverb with another, often verified.
