Bible: Matt 4:12-18

Preaching in Galilee

4:12 Now when Jesus 1  heard that John had been imprisoned, 2  he went into Galilee. 4:13 While in Galilee, he moved from Nazareth 3  to make his home in Capernaum 4  by the sea, 5  in the region of Zebulun and Naphtali, 4:14 so that what was spoken by Isaiah the prophet would be fulfilled: 6 

4:15Land of Zebulun and land of Naphtali,

the way by the sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles

4:16 the people who sit in darkness have seen a great light,

and on those who sit in the region and shadow of death a light has dawned.” 7 

4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach this message: 8  “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near.”

The Call of the Disciples

4:18 As 9  he was walking by the Sea of Galilee he saw two brothers, Simon (called Peter) and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea (for they were fishermen). 10
