Mark 6 wrote: Jesus left there and went to his hometown, accompanied by his disciples.
 When the Sabbath came, he began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him were amazed. “Where did this man get these things?” they asked. “What’s this wisdom that has been given him? What are these remarkable miracles he is performing?
 Isn’t this the carpenter? Isn’t this Mary’s son and the brother of James, Joseph,[a] Judas and Simon? Aren’t his sisters here with us?” And they took offense at him.
 Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his own town, among his relatives and in his own home.”
 He could not do any miracles there, except lay his hands on a few sick people and heal them.
There appears to be some tension between the assertion that the people were amazed at the remarkable miracles Jesus had just performed, and the assertion that he could not perform any miracles there. This pericope is often used to demonstrate Markan priority, as Matthew presents Jesus impotence less starkly. However, what can be derived from the fact that the Markan version is not self-consistent?
