Jesus and the disciples leave (Mk 8:10-8:10)


Jesus got into

The boat

With his disciples.

They went

To the district

Of Dalmanutha.”


Καὶ εὐθὺς ἐμβὰς εἰς τὸ πλοῖον μετὰ τῶν μαθητῶν αὐτοῦ ἦλθεν εἰς τὰ μέρη Δαλμανουθά.


Matthew, chapter 15:39, has a similar statement about getting into a boat and traveling, but there Jesus went to Magadan, not Dalmanutha.  Mark said that Jesus then immediately got into his boat (Καὶ εὐθὺς ἐμβὰς εἰς τὸ πλοῖον) with his disciples (μετὰ τῶν μαθητῶν αὐτοῦ).  He went or traveled to the region of Dalmanutha (ἦλθεν εἰς τὰ μέρη Δαλμανουθά).  Are Magadan and Dalmanutha near each other on the northwestern shore of the Sea of Galilee?  No one knows for sure, but this area might be between Capernaum and Tiberias near Gennesaret.
