Beginning of Jesus Ministry
When Jesus heard that John had been arrested,
he withdrew to Galilee.
He left Nazareth and went to live in Capernaum by the sea,
in the region of Zebulun and Naphtali,
that what had been said through Isaiah the prophet
might be fulfilled:
Land of Zebulun and land of Naphtali,
the way to the sea, beyond the Jordan,
Galilee of the Gentiles,
the people who sit in darkness
have seen a great light,
on those dwelling in a land overshadowed by death
light has arisen.
From that time on, Jesus began to preach and say,
“Repent, for the Kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
He went around all of Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the Gospel of the Kingdom, and curing every disease and illness among the people.
His fame spread to all of Syria, and they brought to him all who were sick with various diseases and racked with pain,
those who were possessed, lunatics, and paralytics,
and he cured them. And great crowds from Galilee, the Decapolis, Jerusalem, and Judea,and from beyond the Jordan followed him.
Nagsimulang Mangangaral at magpagaling si Jesus
12 Nang marinig ni Jesus na si Juan ay naibilanggo, pumunta siya sa Galilea. 13 Mula sa Nazaret ay pumunta siya sa Capernaum at doon nanirahan. Ito ay nasa tabi ng dagat, sa may hangganan ng Zebulon at Neftali. 14 Ginawa niya ito upang matupad ang inihula ni propeta Isaias na nagsabi:
15 Ang lupain ng Zebulon at ang lupain ng
Neftali, daanan sa gawing dagat sa ibayong
Jordan, Galilea ng mga Gentil. 16 Ang mga
taong nanahan sa kadiliman ay nakakita ng
dakilang liwanag. Sumikat ang ilaw sa kanila na
nanahan sa pook at lilim ng kamatayan.
