06.01.06 Jn. 4:43-45 Galilee
JESUS RETURNS TO THE PROVINCIAL DISTRICT GALILEE.
43 After two days He left there for Galilee. 44 Jesus Himself testified that a prophet has no honor in his own country. 45 When they entered Galilee, the Galileans welcomed Him because they had seen everything He did in Jerusalem during the festival. For they also had gone to the festival.
The reputation of Jesus went before him. In a society where changes occurred very slowly, a man performing miracles was a major event. Everyone wanted to see the “Miracle Man,” who some thought might be the Man of God. Therefore, when Jesus arrived in the Galilean communities, He had a waiting audience.
