I may be reaching, but, as I'm reading Matthew Henry's commentary on the whole Bible, in Matthew ch. 2 intro. he mentions Jesus' flight into Egypt then back into Israel again.

This seems to me to even point toward the fact that the Gospel will go to the gentiles also. He dwelt among the gentiles even as a baby!

The Gospel began and started in Israel, is now among the gentiles, and will eventually be united in the New Jerusalem, no? I think his toddler journey to and fro and back again may have been a foreshadowing of the way it's all to happen. Is this a reasonable way to think of this?

All thoughts welcome!
