Early in His ministry, Jesus moved from Nazareth to Capernaum. I want you to take a look at what the gospel writer Matthew says about it.
12 Now when he heard that John had been arrested, he withdrew into Galilee. 13 And leaving Nazareth he went and lived in Capernaum by the sea, in the territory of Zebulun and Naphtali, 14 so that what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah might be fulfilled:
15 “The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali,
the way of the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles—
16 the people dwelling in darkness
have seen a great light,
and for those dwelling in the region and shadow of death,
on them a light has dawned.” Matthew 4:12 – 16
Jesus showed up in town and a great light dawned on those sitting in darkness. Why would this be said of Him?
