Anything Good?


“Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” asked Nathaniel.

Later the religious leaders said “Look in to it.  You will see that no prophet comes out of Galilee.”

There were people who doubted Jesus’ authority, because they saw him as a nobody from nowhere.

So did they have it right.  Is Jesus disqualified as the son of God because he happened to live in Nazareth?  Or does that all the more qualify him as a wonderful example for any person from anywhere to follow in his footsteps?

Listen to the message and see what you think.

Don’t go to church
