Leaving Nazareth, he went and lived in Capernaum, which was by the lake in the area of Zebulun and Naphtali- to fulfill what was said through the prophet Isaiah: "Land of Zebulun and land of Naphtali, the Way of the Sea, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles- the people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned."
From that time forward, we have His light to live by, to guide us in this life and then to guide us home. And it's a "great light." The Greatest Light.
During the dog days of summer, in order to cope with the extreme heat, we become rather like moles around here. For the better part of the day the shades are drawn and thermal curtains closed. We can't tell if it's sunny out or not (which it is). We are literally living in a form of darkness.
But when I do step outside to run an errand, I exclaim, "Bright light!!!" The difference is remarkable, and the light dazzling.
"The people living in darkness have seen a great light."
Come to Jesus, Friends. He'll positively dazzle you.
