1. Mark 6:2 (ESV)
  2. Exposition

What prophecy do the questions regarding Jesus' wisdom and mighty works remind us of?

Mark 6:2 (ESV)

2 And on the Sabbath he began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him were astonished, saying, “Where did this man get these things? What is the wisdom given to him? How are such mighty works done by his hands?

In Isaiah 53:1–12, a prophecy is made about God’s servant. It mentions that God’s servant had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him. It was Jesus’ ordinary appearance that caused the people of Nazareth to reject him and ignore him. They could not believe that he was really who he claimed to be. They could see only the carpenter.
