Scripture Reflections

First Reading (Ezek 2:2-5). God sends a prophet to his people to ensure that they do not remain in ignorance of their disobedience.

Second Reading (2 Cor 12:7-10). In his weakness Paul experiences the power of Godís grace.

Gospel (Mk 6:1-6). True to the proverb that no prophet is honored by his own people, Jesus is rejected by the people of Nazareth.

A biblical prophet is someone who has received a divine call to speak Godís word to his people (First Reading). Even though the Word of God could be a hard word, it was a word of love because it meant that God had not abandoned his people. Godís spokesman had to be prepared for opposition and rejection. It was so for the Old Testament prophets, and for Jesus himself.

At the close of his Galilean ministry Jesus is rejected by the people of his home town, who canít bring themselves to believe in the greatness of someone who is one of themselves. Consequently, his power is ineffective there. Their rejection of him is an anticipation of his rejection by the Jewish nation as a whole.

Christians today should not grow discouraged by lack of belief. Paulís experience of weakness (Ďa thorn in the fleshí) taught him humility, and allowed him to experience Godís power in a way that might not otherwise have been possible. The words ĎMy grace is sufficient for you,í are spoken to us too, and should be a great consolation to us in our struggles.
