Jesus Begins to Preach

12 When Jesus heard that John had been put in prison,6 he returned to Galilee.7 13 Leaving Nazareth, he went and lived in Capernaum,8 which was by the lake in the area of Zebulun and Naphtali-- 14 to fulfill9 what was said through the prophet Isaiah: 15 "Land of Zebulun and land of Naphtali, the way to the sea, along the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles-- 16 the people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned."c10 17 From that time on Jesus began to preach, "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven11 is near."
