We read in the Book of Isaiah:
8:23 (9:1) For is there no gloom to her that was steadfast? Now the former has lightly afflicted the land of Z’vulun, and the land of Naftali, but the latter has dealt a more grievous blow by the way of the sea, beyond the Yarden, in the district of the nations.
9:1 (9:2) The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light; they that dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, upon them has the light shined.
9:2 (9:3) You have multiplied the nation, You have increased their joy; they joy before you according to the joy in harvest, as men rejoice when they divide the spoil.
9:3 (9:4) For the yoke of his burden, and the staff of his shoulder; the rod of his oppressor, You have broken as in the day of Midian.
(Isaiah 8:23-9:2 (9:1-3))
These word of Isaiah are no doubt the basis for a teaching repeated several times in the Zohar to that Messiah will begin his ministry in Galil (Galilee):
"The Messiah will appear in the land of Galilee."
“[The] Messiah … shall reveal himself in the land of Galilee; for in this part of the Holy Land the desolation first began, and therefore he will manifest himself there first.”
"The Messiah... will arise in the land of Galilee… the Messiah shall reveal himself in the land of Galilee because in this part of the Holy Land the desolation (Babylonian exile) first began, therefore he will manifest himself there first."
(Zohar 3:7b, 8b, 220a)
This prophecy was fulfilled by Yeshua when he began his ministry in Galil:
12 And after Yeshua had heard that Yochanan was imprisoned,365 He went to Galil.
13 And leaving Natzaret, He left and dwelt in K'far Nachum (which is a city by the sea,
on the border of Z'vulun and Naftali),
14 To establish what was spoken by the mouth of Yesha'yahu the prophet, who said,
15 Land of Z'vulun, and land of Naftali, the way of the sea beyond Yarden, Galil of
16 The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light; the inhabitants of
the land of the shadow of death, a light has shined upon them. (Is. 8:23-9:1 (9:1-2))
(Matthew 4:12-16 HRV)
14 And Yeshua returned in the power of the Spirit to Galil: and the report about Him
went out into every region around them.
15 And He was teaching in their synagogues and was glorified by everyone.
(Luke 4:14-15 HRV)
