The Galilee of the Nations

Most of us are familiar with the wonderful messianic prophecy as found in Isaiah 9:6, which reads-

'For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us;
And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Eternal Father, Prince of Peace.'

This was written by Isaiah about 685 years before Yeshua was born to Mary, in Bethlehem, however most overlook the verses that come prior to this as the whole section is a great oracle pointing at the messiah and his Galilean ministry.  It reads-

  'As the former time made light The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, So the latter hath honoured the way of the sea, Beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the nations.

The people who are walking in darkness Have seen a great light, Dwellers in a land of death-shade, Light hath shone upon them.

Thou hast multiplied the nation, Thou hast made great its joy, They have joyed before Thee as the joy in harvest, As [men] rejoice in their apportioning spoil.

 Because the yoke of its burden, And the staff of its shoulder, the rod of its exactor, Thou hast broken as [in] the day of Midian.

 For every battle of a warrior [is] with rushing, and raiment rolled in blood, And it hath been for burning -- fuel of fire.'

The above plainly indicates that the peoples around the Sea of Galilee will see great light, and come out of their darkness and gloom. According to the gospels, Yeshua did most of his ministry near the Sea of Galilee. While a host of events were in or around Jerusalem, the Lord spent most of the years of His ministry along the shore of this big lake.  Within sight of the water, Yeshua preached and taught the majorities of his doctrines and parables, including the Sermon on the mount, which some refer to as the messianic Torah.  Most of his miracles were performed near the waters of Galilee.  The peoples here, certainly, witnessed the greatest light.
