Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Luke 4:24

_ _ And he said, etc. — He replies to the one proverb by another, equally familiar, which we express in a rougher form — “Too much familiarity breeds contempt.” Our Lord’s long residence in Nazareth merely as a townsman had made Him too common, incapacitating them for appreciating Him as others did who were less familiar with His everyday demeanor in private life. A most important principle, to which the wise will pay due regard. (See also Matthew 7:6, on which our Lord Himself ever acted.)

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Luke 4:14-30.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Luke 4:24

No prophet is acceptable in his own country — That is, in his own neighbourhood. It generally holds, that a teacher sent from God is not so acceptable to his neighbours as he is to strangers. The meanness of his family, or lowness of his circumstances, bring his office into contempt: nor can they suffer that he, who was before equal with, or below themselves, should now bear a superior character.
