Today we are back in Matthew’s gospel in 4:13-23. This passage begins suddenly with the death of John, Jesus’ cousin, at the hand of King Herod. In the structure and arc of Matthew’s gospel, this significant event seems to be the thing that propels Jesus into his public ministry.

Scripture: Matthew 4:13-23 

He left Nazareth and made his home in Capernaum by the sea, in the territory of Zebulun and Naphtali, so that what had been spoken through the prophet Isaiah might be fulfilled: “Land of Zebulun, land of Naphtali, on the road by 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 proclaim, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven has come near.”
