Geneva Notes/ Commentary on Matthew 4:12-22

From the Geneva Notes

Mt 4:12
4:12 {2} Now when Jesus had heard that John was cast into
prison, he departed into Galilee;

(2) When the Herald's mouth is stopped, the Lord reveals
himself and brings full light into the darkness of this
world, preaching free forgiveness of sins for those that
repent.

Mt 4:13
4:13 And leaving Nazareth, he came and dwelt in {d} Capernaum,
which is upon the sea coast, in the borders of Zabulon and
Nephthalim:

(d) Which was a town a great deal more famous than Nazareth
was.

Mt 4:15
4:15 The land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthalim, [by] the way of
the {e} sea, beyond Jordan, {f} Galilee of the Gentiles;

(e) Of Tiberias, or because that country went toward
Tyre, which borders the eastern Mediterranean Sea.
(f) So called because it bordered upon Tyre and Sidon, and
because Solomon gave the king of Tyre twenty cities in
that quarter; 1Ki 9:11.

Mt 4:17
4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the
kingdom of heaven is at {g} hand.

(g) Is come to you.

Mt 4:18
4:18 {3} And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two
brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother,
casting a net into the sea: for they were fishers.

(3) Christ, thinking that he would eventually depart from us,
even at the beginning of his preaching gets himself
disciples of a heavenly sort, poor and unlearned, and
therefore such as might be left as honest witnesses of the
truth of those things which they heard and saw.
