Nazareth is located east of the Sea of Galilee and is believed to be the poor village where Jesus grew up until he became an adult. In the NT, to distinguish him from other people who had the same name and to underline his humble socio-economic conditions, Jesus is primarily identified by his followers as “Jesus of Nazareth ” (John 1:45; cf. Matthew 27:32). Nazareth was probably the poorest of all villages in Galilee during the first century. By up-bringing, choice and symbolism, Jesus ministered to the marginalized on his time.
