The Gospel Introduction Matthew 4: 12-23

On the first Sunday of Epiphany (The Baptism of the Lord) we heard the story of John the Baptist baptizing Jesus in the river Jordon.

On the second Sunday after Epiphany we heard the story that John reveals Jesus as “The Lamb of God”.

Today, the Third Sunday after Epiphany, the story continues as Jesus begins his ministry. He heard that John had been arrested, so he withdrew to Galilee and left Nazareth, then made his home in Capernum by the sea, across the Jordan, in the territory of Zebulum and Naphtali, to Galilee, and now he begins to proclaim, his message, “Repent for the Kingdom of heaven has come near”.

Lets now, walk with Jesus and hear what happens next…………………
