The Message: Turning The World Upside Down


12–17     When Jesus got word that John had been arrested, he returned to Galilee. He moved from his hometown, Nazareth, to the lakeside village Capernaum, nestled at the base of the Zebulun and Naphtali hills. This move completed Isaiah’s sermon:
     Land of Zebulun, land of Naphtali,
     road to the sea, over Jordan,
     Galilee, crossroads for the nations.
     People sitting out their lives in the dark
     saw a huge light;
     Sitting in that dark, dark country of death,
     they watched the sun come up.
     This Isaiah-prophesied sermon came to life in Galilee the moment Jesus started preaching. He picked up where John left off: “Change your life. God’s kingdom is here.”
