1 Peter 2:8
A stone to stumble over,
and a rock to trip over.They stumble because they disobey the message; they were destined for this.
He will be a sanctuary;
but for the two houses of Israel,
He will be a stone to stumble over
and a rock to trip over,
and a trap and a snare to the inhabitants of Jerusalem.
Everyone who falls on that stone will be broken to pieces, and if it falls on anyone, it will grind him to powder!”
And if anyone is not offended because of Me, he is blessed.”
And they were offended by Him.But Jesus said to them, “A prophet is not without honor except in his hometown and in his household.”
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.
Then the disciples came up and told Him, “Do You know that the Pharisees took offense when they heard this statement?”
