Joseph and Mary Settle in Nazareth

The Bible reveals that Joseph took his family to Galilee in northern Israel, to a city called Nazareth. This city would become the home of Jesus throughout His early years growing up. One could stand on a hillside in Nazareth and see many of the historical landmarks, or a major highway of many travelers passing by. Nazareth means "branch" and is reminiscent of Jesus` lineage, a "branch" of king David. Nazareth was a part of the tribe of Zebulun and the prophet Isaiah foretold that the light of the messiah would dawn in this area first.
