GREAT MINISTRY IN GALILEE
Feb 12 5.1 Jesus returned to Galilee in the Holy Spirit’s power, after John’s imprisonment, preaching the good news of God’s kingdom, saying, “The time has come. God’s kingdom is near. Repent and believe the good news.” His fame spread throughout the region, and all praised him as he taught in their synagogues.
5.2 Though Jesus often said that a prophet has no honor in his own country, the Galileans welcomed him, having seen the great things he did at the Passover1 feast. He visited Cana in Galilee where he had turned water into wine. A nobleman, whose son was ill in Capernaum, on hearing that Jesus had returned from Judea, came and asked him to come and heal his dying son.
