Transcript Transcript

At that time, when Jesus heard that John had been arrested, he withdrew into Galilee; and leaving Nazareth he went and dwelt in Capernaum by the sea, in the territory of Zebulun and Naphtali, that what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah might be fulfilled,
“The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, toward the sea, across the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles—the people who sat in darkness have seen a great light, and for those who sat in the region and shadow of death light has dawned.”
From that time Jesus began to preach, saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

Who was it that this Gospel says was arrested? What do we call him?
Where did Jesus withdraw to? 
Whose prophecy did this fulfill? What did the prophecy say?
What “great light” did the Gentiles in Galilee see?
What did Jesus begin to do there?
What about you? When do you see Jesus, the Great Light? Do you repent?

"Before I joined the Point Loma Nazarene School, I had been searching for an Orthodox college that offers a masters program, particularly in business and law. Unfortunately, I couldn't find one. So, i joined the PLNU and was able to meet a number of Chrisitans from all kinds of denominations. The best part was that when I met my classmate, who happens to be an Orthodox Christian, he told me about Ancient Faith Radio, Project Mexico, and other organizations that are related to the Orthodox faith. AFR has been a blessing to me and my father. We were listening to the Eternal Word Television Network, a Catholic station, but now my father and I spend more time listening to Ancient Faith Radio. The podcasts and the music have also been a blessing to my Ethiopian Orthodox friends and relatives! Thank you for helping bring us closer to the almighty God through Orthodox Christian teachings. May the good Lord bless you!"
