Matthew 4:12-17 | Activity of the King

An Exposition of Matthew 4:12-17

Now when Jesus heard that John had been taken into custody, He withdrew into Galilee; and leaving Nazareth, He came and settled in Capernaum, which is by the sea, in the region of Zebulun and Naphtali. This was to fulfill what was spoken through Isaiah the prophet:
“The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali,
BY the way of the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles—
“The people who were sitting in darkness saw A great Light,
And those who were sitting in the land and shadow of death,
Upon them A Light dawned.”
From that time Jesus began to preach and say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
