New Defender's Study Bible Notes

4:14 be fulfilled. The prophecy spoken of in Matthew 4:15-16 is found in Isaiah 9:1-2, which provides the background of the tremendous prophecy of the name of Emmanuel—“Wonderful Counselor, the mighty God, the everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace” (Isaiah 9:6). Much of Jesus’ early teaching ministry was carried out in Galilee, especially Capernaum, and at least His first six disciples came from there (Matthew 4:18-22; also John 1:35-51).
