The great crowds (Mt 8:18-8:18)

“Now when Jesus saw

Great crowds

Around him,

He gave orders

To go over

To the other side.”

 

Ἰδὼν δὲ ὁ Ἰησοῦς ὄχλον περὶ αὐτὸν ἐκέλευσεν ἀπελθεῖν εἰς τὸ πέραν.

 

This idea of crossing over to the other side of the Sea of Galilee can be found in Mark, chapter 4:35 and Luke, chapter 8:22.  Jesus saw these crowds around him (Ἰδὼν δὲ ὁ Ἰησοῦς ὄχλον περὶ αὐτὸν), so he commanded or ordered his followers to leave or go over to the other side (ἐκέλευσεν ἀπελθεῖν εἰς τὸ πέραν), the eastern side of the Sea of Galilee.
