Matthew 13:56 And he did not many mighty works there because of their unbelief. KJV

It's sad that the town that was his home did not see much evidence of his power. Maybe that's why he moved to Capernaum. He preached there once and they looked at him with amazement. "He grew up here. Where did he get all this learning?" Their familiarity was a deterrent to their belief.

Where is our faith today? Do we still fail to see his works because of our unbelief.
