He Shall Be Called A Nazorean

When Herod died, an angel of the Lord suddenly appeared in a dream to Joseph in Egypt and said, “Get up, take the child and his mother, and go to the land of Israel, for those who were seeking the child’s life are dead.” Then Joseph got up, took the child and his mother, and went to the land of Israel.But when he heard that Archelaus was ruling over Judea in place of his father Herod, he was afraid to go there. And after being warned in a dream, he went away to the district of Galilee. There he made his home in a town called Nazareth, so that what had been spoken through the prophets might be fulfilled, “He will be called a Nazorean.”

Escape to Egypt

Now after they had left, an angel of the Lord appeared to Joseph in a dream and said, “Get up, take the child and his mother, and flee to Egypt, and remain there until I tell you; for Herod is about to search for the child, to destroy him.”Then Joseph got up, took the child and his mother by night, and went to Egypt,and remained there until the death of Herod. This was to fulfill what had been spoken by the Lord through the prophet, “Out of Egypt I have called my son” (vv. 13-15).

Grateful to be blogging again after a three-week absence! On the road to recovery from pneumonia.

Rebellion

In verses 7-11, we’re reminded of the Israelites’ disobedience in the desert after their deliverance out of Egypt.

We’re warned not to make the same mistake.

Egypt’s Judgment

In Ezekiel 29:1-16, we read about God’s warning to Pharaoh, King of Egypt.

Despite these harsh words, there is an ancient tradition of Coptic Christianity in Egypt.

It reminds me of Psalm 84:10b, “I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God / than dwell in the tents of the wicked.”
