1 He went away from there and came to His hometown, and His disciples followed Him. 2 When the Sabbath came, He began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard Him were astonished. "Where did this man get these things?" they said. "What is this wisdom given to Him, and these miracles performed by His hands? 3 Isn't this the carpenter, the son of Mary, and the brother of James, Joses, Judas, and Simon? And aren't His sisters here with us?" So they were offended by Him. 4 Then Jesus said to them, "A prophet is not without honor except in his hometown, among his relatives, and in his household." 5 So He was not able to do any miracles there, except that He laid His hands on a few sick people and healed them. 6 And He was amazed at their unbelief. (Mark 6) Matt. 13:58 And He did not do many miracles there because of their unbelief. It seems that unbelief is a prerequisite for God to work, yet Calvinists maintain that belief is work of the Spirit in man, not man's response to the Spirit's call. Jesus continually throughout the text rebukes man's unbelief. Why? If it is a work of God, why would he rebuke man for not doing it? That is absurd! That is like rebuking your children for not unlocking the door that only you have a key to.
