Then Jesus began to denounce the cities in which most of his miracles had been performed, because they did not repent.
I don’t get it! How could they fail to repent? Jesus was teaching and working miracles right there in their own hometowns!
Jesus mentions three towns by name - Korazin, Bethsaida, and Capernaum. Why did Jesus single them out?
The people of Korazin probably heard the Sermon on the Mount. Jesus healed a blind man and fed the 5,000 at Bethsaida. Capernaum saw Jesus perform many miracles.
In the very presence and power of Jesus and still they didn’t repent!
Jesus says the people of Sodom will be better off in the Judgment than they will be!
What would Jesus say about this generation? My hometown! Me?
Sobering really, because we have some advantages they didn’t. We know much more about Jesus!
What was it about them He condemned?
Oh yeah, they didn't repent.
