Is Jesus a failure?
Nothing in my hand I bring,
Simply to Thy cross I cling;
Naked come to Thee for dress;
Helpless, look to Thee for grace;
Foul, I to the fountain fly,
Wash me, Savior, or I die! 
Nazareth was a defeat for Jesus. A place where Jesus was despised and rejected.
Isaiah predicted this by inspiration. Isaiah 53:3-5
Isaiah prophesied that Jesus; the suffering Servant of the LORD, would be scorned. Not because He came from Galilee an area of Israel often disrespected. (John 7:41, 52) Not because he was raised in Nazareth a town in which folk would ask, “Can anything good come from there?” (John 1:46) Not because he was a man of meager means. (Luke 2:22-24)
Stricken, smitten, and afflicted, See Him dying on the tree! He hangs there; for you and for me. And He goes before you to plead your cause before the throne of His Father as your eternal high priest.
Why would the Father appoint Jesus as the eternal high priest? Jesus did not function as a high priest on earth, but was appointed high priest for the sanctuary in heaven.
Why is there a need of a high priest in heaven? For one thing, the high priest, because of his identification with humanity can understand and sympathize with the people’s plight. As a priest, Christ can understand the needs of people. Moreover, the priest is needed to intercede with the Father for no one comes to the Father except by Jesus. (John16:6) Above all, the high priest makes the one perfect sacrifice for the sins of the world.
We do not have a God who was too proud to know His people. Or, a God content to rule from a great distance. Or, a God whose majesty was too awesome for us to behold. We have just the opposite.

No, you do not walk this road alone. Jesus is the God who came down from heaven. He was that man. “He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed. –Isaiah 53:3-5
Show your scars to Jesus and He will show you His. He will take your scarred heart in his scarred hands and love you, and love you, and love you still more; until all that matters is not the scar upon your heart, but the scar embedded in His hand. As your eternal high priest Jesus is able to not only sympathize but to offer clemency for your offenses.
Of all places Jesus could have expected acceptance was among His closest friends and family. It may have discouraged Jesus to giving up His teaching and preaching. How does He take this failure? “He went on…teaching.” He went on with His work to other places; working as hard as ever.”
