Galilee where Jesus grew up.
small village in Galilee, Nazareth was
the home of Mary and Joseph. Although
Jesus was born
in Bethlehem, he
grew up in Nazareth. Local disdain for Nazareth
is evident in the comment, "Can anything
good come out of Nazareth?" made by Nathanael,
who came from the nearby town of Cana (John
1:46). According to Luke 4:16-30 Jesus told
the people in a synagogue at Nazareth that the
Spirit of the Lord was upon him. The crowd grew
angry and wanted to kill Jesus, but he left
Nazareth for Capernaum.
