Matthew 4:12-17

Jesus Begins His Ministry

12 Now when Jesus heard that 1John had been taken into custody, 2He withdrew into Galilee;
13 and leaving Nazareth, He came and 3settled in Capernaum, which is by the sea, in the region of Zebulun and Naphtali.
14 This was to fulfill what was spoken through Isaiah the prophet:
15 "4THE LAND OF ZEBULUN AND THE LAND OF NAPHTALI, BY THE WAY OF THE SEA, BEYOND THE JORDAN, GALILEE OF THE GENTILES -
16 "5THE 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."
17 6From that time Jesus began to preach and say, "7Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand."
