[edit] Lexical notes

  • The word translated as "friends" in verse 21 comes from a Greek word (para) meaning "by" or "close to." Some modern translations use "family" or "kinsmen" here. The difference is probably unimportant; the point is that the people close to Jesus thought he was crazy.

[edit] Exegesis

  • The theme of verse 21 is repeated in Mark 6:4, when Jesus says that a prophet is without honor among his own kin and in his own country.
