Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Matthew 13:54

_ _ And when he was come into his own country — that is, Nazareth; as is plain from Mark 6:1. See on John 4:43, where also the same phrase occurs. This, according to the majority of Harmonists, was the second of two visits which our Lord paid to Nazareth during His public ministry; but in our view it was His first and only visit to it. See on Matthew 4:13; and for the reasons, see Luke 4:16-30.

_ _ Whence hath this man this wisdom, and these mighty works? — “these miracles.” These surely are not like the questions of people who had asked precisely the same questions before, who from astonishment had proceeded to rage, and in their rage had hurried Him out of the synagogue, and away to the brow of the hill whereon their city was built, to thrust Him down headlong, and who had been foiled even in that object by His passing through the midst of them, and going His way. But see on Luke 4:16, etc.

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on Matthew 13:53-58.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Matthew 13:54

Whence hath HE — Many texts are not understood, for want of knowing the proper emphasis; and others are utterly misunderstood, by placing the emphasis wrong. To prevent this in some measure, the emphatical words are here printed in capital letters. Mark 6:1; Luke 4:16, Luke 4:22.

Geneva Bible Translation Notes

Matthew 13:54

(10) And when he was come into his own country, he taught them in their synagogue, insomuch that they were astonished, and said, Whence hath this [man] this wisdom, and [these] mighty works?

(10) Men not only sin because of ignorance, but also knowingly and willingly they lay stumbling blocks in their own ways, that when God calls them, they may not obey, and so most plainly destroy and cast away themselves.
