“Therefore, the Nazarene here has the meaning not so much of the inhabitant of Nazareth as of the righteous man, who fulfils the law of the Lord and makes an oath to God and upholds it…So, the prophecy does not refer to a specific prophet, but to a state of mind, that of fidelity to God, of faithfulness, godliness, and holiness. And Jesus Christ..”
(Patriarch Daniel of Romania, December homily)
