When the two days were over, he went from that place to Galilee (for Jesus himself had testified that a prophet has no honor in the prophet’s own country). When he came to Galilee, the Galileans welcomed him, since they had seen all that he had done in Jerusalem at the festival; for they too had gone to the festival. (John 4:43-45, NRSV)
The only reason he was welcomed was because they had been in Jerusalem and they had seen what he had done there and so they wanted Him to come to their hometown because maybe He would do something for them.
Why do we want Jesus around?
For what He can do for us?
Or for what He did for us?
