- Many of the Jewish traditions, in accordance with Isaiah 9:1 , 2, ; assert that Galilee was the place where the Messiah should first appear. Thus also Isaiah 2:19 ,"When he shall arise to smite terribly the earth," is expounded in the book Zohar, as referring to the Messiah: "When he shall arise; [Vayitgaleh be-ar'ah de-galil,] and shall be revealed in the land of Galilee."
