On the Sunday after Theophany, the Gospel account in Matthew 4: 12-17, mentions the arrest of John the Baptist, and the beginning of the Lord’s preaching ministry.  The Gospel account is as follows:

“At that time, when Jesus heard that John had been arrested, he withdrew into Galilee; and leaving Nazareth he went and dwelt in Capernaum by the sea, in the territory of Zebulun and Naphtali, that what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah might be fulfilled: “The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, toward the sea, across the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles, the people who sat in darkness have seen a great light, and for those who sat in the region and shadow of death light has dawned.” From that time Jesus began to preach, saying, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”

The leave-taking of Theophany is January 14th.
