Yeshua Withdraws to Seek God

12 Now when Yeshua heard that John had been handed over, He withdrew to the Galilee. 13 Leaving Natzeret, He came and settled in Capernaum, which is by the sea in the regions of Zebulun and Naphtali. 14 This was to fulfill what was spoken through Isaiah the prophet, saying,

15 “Land of Zebulun and land of Naphtali,

on them a light has dawned.”[a]
