Yeshua - The Man Jesus

Examining Christ as Messiah

Galilean ministry
(20 October 2017)

It was foretold in the Old Testament...

Nevertheless, that time of darkness and despair will not go on forever. The land of Zebulun and Naphtali will soon be humbled, but there will be a time in the future when Galilee of the Gentiles, which lies along the road that runs between the Jordan and the sea, will be filled with glory. The people who walk in darkness will see a great light-- a light that will shine on all who live in the land where death casts its shadow. NLT Isaiah 9:1-2


... and it was fulfilled...

But instead of going to Nazareth, he went to Capernaum, beside the Sea of Galilee, in the region of Zebulun and Naphtali. This fulfilled Isaiah's prophecy: "In the land of Zebulun and of Naphtali, beside the sea, beyond the Jordan River-- in Galilee where so many Gentiles live-- the people who sat in darkness have seen a great light. And for those who lived in the land where death casts its shadow, a light has shined." From then on, Jesus began to preach, "Turn from your sins and turn to God, because the Kingdom of Heaven is near. " NLT Matthew 4:13-17
