The disciples' attitude to Nazareth in Galilee can be gauged from the comment in John 1:46 -
And Nathanael said unto him, Can there any good thing come out of Nazareth? Philip saith unto him, Come and see.
In the time of Solomon in 1Kings 9:
10 Now at the end of the twenty years during which Solomon built these two houses, the house of the LORD and the royal palace, 11King Solomon gave twenty towns in the land of Galilee to Hiram king of Tyre, who had supplied him with cedar and cypress logs and gold for his every desire. 12So Hiram went out from Tyre to inspect the towns that Solomon had given him, but he was not pleased with them.
13“What are these towns you have given me, my brother?” asked Hiram, and he called them the Land of Cabul, as they are called to this day.
Cabul sounds like the Hebrew for good-for-nothing.
The Pharisees rebuke Nicodemus in John 7:
47“You mean he has deceived you also?” the Pharisees retorted. 48“Have any of the rulers or of the Pharisees believed in him? 49No! But this mob that knows nothing of the law—there is a curse on them.”
50 Nicodemus, who had gone to Jesus earlier and who was one of their own number, asked, 51“Does our law condemn a man without first hearing him to find out what he has been doing?”
52They replied, “Are you from Galilee, too? Look into it, and you will find that a prophet does not come out of Galilee.”
Did this disrespect for Galilee come from 1Kings 9? Was it some sort of folklore?
