INTRODUCTION

We have here the story of 2 PLACES in Israel, Capernaum, and Nazareth. They both had the SAME STORY — they lost the opportunity to believe and accept Jesus as Messiah. Jesus had shown INCONTROVERTIBLE EVIDENCES in WISDOM and POWER and these were MORE than ENOUGH for these cities to come to Christ. But they didn’t and so TRAGEDY was what awaited them. Here are the 3 points to our study today.

TEXT: Matthew 13:53-58
