The people of Nazareth were expecting Jesus to do good things for them. But when Jesus lets them know that He isn't there to "fix" everything, there is an immediate and radical shift in their attitudes, thinking and actions. Verses 28 and 29 are quite revealing. "When they heard these things, all in the synagogue were filled with wrath. And they rose up and drove him out of the town and brought him to the brow of the hill on which their town was built, so that they could throw him down the cliff."
