Luke 4:28 No One Is So Wrathful

Luke 4:28 (KJV)
And all they in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath,

So early in Christ’s ministry and already the people were filled with wrath and would have killed Him. Though, for a time, multitudes followed Jesus, the religious crowd in Nazareth and Jerusalem would have killed Him had they the opportunity.

Their anger was stirred,

  • Because He said they would not honor His
  • Because He said God’s blessings would be on Gentiles
  • Because He said the cleansing of God would not come to Israel

This was so early in Christ’s ministry that He had called none out of the synagogue. He had not overthrown the money changer’s tables. Jesus had done nothing to set Himself up in opposition to either the Temple Worship or the Roman leadership. He had done few miracles, if any. He had preached no sermons.

They had just one reason to be filled with such hateful wrath; He had implied that they were of the same nature as those in the past who did not believe God.

No one is so wrathful as the one filled with religious indignation.
