Why Galilee? Because of Sheol

Post by Giuseppe » Sat Jun 22, 2019 9:44 am

Isaiah 9:1-2 9

Nevertheless, there will be no more gloom for those who were in distress. In the past he humbled the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, but in the future he will honor Galilee of the nations, by the Way of the Sea, beyond the Jordan—

The people walking in darkness
have seen a great light;
on those living in the land of deep darkness
a light has dawned.


The souls in Sheol were “walking in darkness”. Who better than them?
Nihil enim in speciem fallacius est quam prava religio. -Liv. xxxix. 16.
