The Messiah Commenced Ministry in Galilee
Prophecy: The Messiah Commenced Ministry in Galilee
As it was written in the Tanakh (NIV & TLV),
Zebulun and Naphtali were located in the northern kingdom of Israel in the land of Galilee during the 1st century CE. When the Assyrian king Tiglath-Pileser invaded Palestine between 734 and 2 B.C., both Zebulun and Naphtali suffered greatly (2 Kings 15:29). However, in Isaiah 9:1-2, God promised that one of the descendants of David’s family would bring the light of salvation throughout Galilee and the surrounding nations.
How did Messiah Jesus Fulfill this Prophecy?
Jesus Chose Galilee as His Home Base During His Ministry
Born in Bethlehem of Judea, and raised in Nazareth, Jesus chose Galilee as His home base during His ministry. Nazareth was located in Lower Galilee, thus Galilee was home to Jesus.
People were amazed when they saw the miracles of Jesus because these were miracles that ONLY God could do!!!
