When you consider that Nazareth was lightly esteemed among all the cities of Israel, you understand the amazing juxtaposition of it with Israel’s Messiah (i.e. Christ). Today we might say He was from “a hick town” or “the sticks.”
To say “Jesus Christ the Nazarene” is therefore like saying “Our glorious King who had been a pauper!”
Let us serve Jesus Christ the Nazarene – He is King of the Universe!
