Jesus goes back to other side of the sea (Mk 5:21-5:21)

“When Jesus

Had crossed again

In the boat

To the other side,

A great crowd

Gathered around him.

He was by the sea.”

 

Καὶ διαπεράσαντος τοῦ Ἰησοῦ ἐν τῷ πλοίῳ πάλιν εἰς τὸ πέραν συνήχθη ὄχλος πολὺς ἐπ’ αὐτόν, καὶ ἦν παρὰ τὴν θάλασσαν.

 

There is something similar to this in Luke, chapter 8:40.  Mark said that Jesus crossed to the other side of the sea in a boat (Καὶ διαπεράσαντος τοῦ Ἰησοῦ ἐν τῷ πλοίῳ πάλιν εἰς τὸ πέραν).  There, a great crowd gathered around him (συνήχθη ὄχλος πολὺς ἐπ’ αὐτόν) near the seashore (καὶ ἦν παρὰ τὴν θάλασσαν).  Jesus had returned to familiar ground in the Jewish area around the western side of the Sea of Galilee.
