Jesus denounces the cities in which most of His miracles were performed - Chorazin, Bethsaida and Capernaum. The latter receives special attention because it is the place where Jesus also made His home. In these very solemn words, we see the following:
Unbelievers are warned of these things and encouraged to respond to the light they have received and not to reject it. Believers are exhorted to be thankful that in them the light has borne fruit leading to eternal life, and to witness to others of the truth of the Gospel.
