March 22 Matthew 4:12-17
12 Now when Jesus* heard that John had been arrested, he withdrew to Galilee.13He left Nazareth and made his home in Capernaum by the lake, in the territory of Zebulun and Naphtali,14so that what had been spoken through the prophet Isaiah might be fulfilled:
15 ‘Land of Zebulun, land of Naphtali,
on the road by the sea, across the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles—
16 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.’
17From that time Jesus began to proclaim, ‘Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.’*
