A Survey of Messianic Prophecy|
Page 4: The Life of Jesus
"But there will be no more gloom for her who was in anguish; in earlier times He treated the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali with contempt, but later on He shall make it glorious, by the way of the sea, on the other side of Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles. The people who walk in darkness will see a great light; Those who live in a dark land, The light will shine on them." (Isaiah 9:1-2)
Isaiah records this wonderful prophecy about the life of Jesus, indicating that He would have a ministry to the people of Galilee. And if there is any question about whom the light is, verse 6 explains,
"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."
