Main point summary
When he came to Galilee, Jesus chose to live in Capernaum to fulfill prophecy by giving light to people in his preaching of repentance .
Now when he heard that n John had been arrested,
o he withdrew into Galilee.
And leaving p Nazareth
he went and lived in q Capernaum by r the sea, in the territory of s Zebulun and Naphtali,
t so that what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah might be fulfilled:
u “The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, the way of the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles—
v the people dwelling in darkness have seen a great light,
and for those dwelling in the region and w shadow of death, on them a light has dawned.”
x From that time Jesus began to preach, saying,
for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
When Jesus moved to Capernaum to give light to those in the darkness of death, he preached a message of repentance because the kingdom of heaven was near .
