Matthew 2:23 And he came and dwelt in a city called Nazareth: that it might be fulfilled which was SPOKEN BY THE PROPHETS, He shall be CALLED a NAZARENE.
John 1:45 Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom MOSES IN THE LAW, and the PROPHETS, did WRITE, Jesus of NAZARETH, the son of Joseph.
Acts 24:5 For we have found this man a pestilent fellow, and a mover of sedition among all the Jews throughout the world, and a ringleader of the sect of the NAZARENES:
A Her Nazarites [Nazarenes] were purer than snow [righteous],
B they were whiter than milk [kept the commandments],
A they were more ruddy [red] in body than rubies [wisdom],
B their polishing was of sapphire [10 commandments]:
