New Life Version
Jesus Preaches in Galilee (A)
12 When Jesus heard that John the Baptist had been put in prison, He went to the country of Galilee. 13 He left Nazareth and went to live in the city of Capernaum. It is by the lake in the land of Zebulun and Naphtali.
14 This happened as the early preacher Isaiah said it would happen. He said, 15 “The land of Zebulun and Naphtali is along the road to the lake. It is on the other side of the Jordan River in Galilee. These people are not Jews. 16 The people who sat in darkness saw a great light. Light did shine on those in the land who were near death.” (B)
17 From that time on, Jesus went about preaching. He said, “Be sorry for your sins and turn from them. The holy nation of heaven is near.”Read full chapter
