“Prophetic Light”

Blessings Folk!

Today’s reading:
Matthew 4:13-17
Mark 1:14b-15
Luke 4:14b-15
John 4:43-46a

Jesus fulfilled all prophecy spoken of Him.
Here we see prophecy related to geographical location as well as purpose.
People in darkness have seen a great light!
Those under the shadow of death have seen a Light.

John had been imprisoned.
Jesus went to Galilee.
He preached…
  • the time if fulfilled
    • what time? prophetic anticipation and waiting for Messiah
    • Messiah was at hand
  • the Kingdom of God is near
  • Repent.
  • Believe the gospel..the Good News

The Word gives many timing elements.
We do well to pay attention.
Here we see “after two days”.
After “two days” of what/where?
Jesus stayed with the Samaritans - the Woman at the Well moment - for two days, then moved on to Galilee.

Jesus stated that a prophet is without honor in His own country.
The Galileans had heard Jesus when they attended the Feast.
They believed.

Do we?
