Jesus goes into the synagogue (Mt 12:9-12:9)

“He left that place.

He entered their synagogue.”


Καὶ μεταβὰς ἐκεῖθεν ἦλθεν εἰς τὴν συναγωγὴν αὐτῶν.


Matthew has Jesus leave the fields and enter the local synagogue.  This is similar to Mark, chapter 3:1, and Luke, chapter 6:6.  Jesus left the grain fields where he had been (Καὶ μεταβὰς ἐκεῖθεν).  Then he entered their synagogue (ἦλθεν εἰς τὴν συναγωγὴν αὐτῶν).  Clearly, Jesus was a good Jewish person, so that he had no trouble or unease about entering the local synagogue, probably at Capernaum.  The discussion that began in the fields now switched to the synagogue.
