Bible: Matthew 2:19-23

The Return to Nazareth

2:19 After Herod 1  had died, an 2  angel of the Lord 3  appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt 2:20 saying, “Get up, take the child and his mother, and go to the land of Israel, for those who were seeking the child’s life are dead.” 2:21 So 4  he got up and took the child and his mother and returned to the land of Israel. 2:22 But when he heard that Archelaus 5  was reigning over Judea in place of his father Herod, 6  he was afraid to go there. After being warned in a dream, he went to the regions of Galilee. 2:23 He came to a town called Nazareth 7  and lived there. Then what had been spoken by the prophets was fulfilled, that Jesus 8  would be called a Nazarene. 9
