THE SEA OF GALILEE © Kristina Afanasyeva | Dreamstime.comNow when the Rabbi heard that Yochanan [his cousin] had been taken into custody, He withdrew into the Galil; and leaving Netzeret, He came and settled in Kefar Nachum [Comfortable Village], which is by the sea, in the region of Zevulun and Naftali. This was to fulfill what was spoken through Yeshayah the Prophet: "THE LAND OF ZEVULUN AND THE LAND OF NAFTALI, BY THE WAY OF THE SEA, BEYOND THE YARDEN, GALIL OF THE NATIONS— THE PEOPLE WHO WERE WALKING IN DARKNESS SAW A GREAT LIGHT, AND THOSE DWELLING IN THE LAND AND SHADOW OF DEATH, UPON THEM A LIGHT DAWNED."

From that time the Rabbi began to preach and say, "Repent, for the Malchut Shamayim [Kingdom of Heaven] is on the brink of arrival."


This is the life of the Rabbi.
