Matthew 13 : 47 - 58

Chapter 13

47"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a dragnet that was cast into the sea and gathered some of every kind,
48which, when it was full, they drew to shore; and they sat down and gathered the good into vessels, but threw the bad away.
49So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come forth, separate the wicked from among the just,
50and cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth."
51Jesus said to them, "Have you understood all these things?" They said to Him, "Yes, Lord."
52Then He said to them, "Therefore every scribe instructed concerning the kingdom of heaven is like a householder who brings out of his treasure things new and old."
53Now it came to pass, when Jesus had finished these parables, that He departed from there.
54When He had come to His own country, He taught them in their synagogue, so that they were astonished and said, "Where did this Man get this wisdom and these mighty works?
55Is this not the carpenter's son? Is not His mother called Mary? And His brothers James, Joses, Simon, and Judas?
56And His sisters, are they not all with us? Where then did this Man get all these things?"
57So they were offended at Him. But Jesus said to them, "A prophet is not without honor except in his own country and in his own house."
58Now He did not do many mighty works there because of their unbelief.
