Mark 6 tells the story of Jesus going home to preach and teach. He enters the synagogue and, like many other speaking engagements, the audience is impressed. In fact, the text says that “many who heard him were amazed.”

Unfortunately, this amazement runs aground on a series of questions. “Isn’t this the carpenter?” “Isn’t this Mary’s son?” “Don’t we know his brothers and sisters?”
