Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Luke 4:23

_ _ this proverb — like our “Charity begins at home.”

_ _ whatsoever, etc. — “Strange rumors have reached our ears of Thy doings at Capernaum; but if such power resides in Thee to cure the ills of humanity, why has none of it yet come nearer home, and why is all this alleged power reserved for strangers?” His choice of Capernaum as a place of residence since entering on public life was, it seems, already well known at Nazareth; and when He did come thither, to give no displays of His power when distant places were ringing with His fame, wounded their pride. He had indeed “laid his hands on a few sick folk and healed them” (Mark 6:5); but this seems to have been done quite privately the general unbelief precluding anything more open.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Luke 4:14-30.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Luke 4:23

Ye will surely say — That is, your approbation now outweighs your prejudices. But it will not be so long. You will soon ask, why my love does not begin at home? Why I do not work miracles here, rather than at Capernaum? It is because of your unbelief. Nor is it any new thing for me to be despised in my own country. So were both Elijah and Elisha, and thereby driven to work miracles among heathens, rather than in Israel.
