A Harmony of the Gospels for Students of the Life

And came into the Dalmanutha

[Footnote 1: Gr. _loaves_.]

[Footnote a: Observe how carefully he keeps away from the territory ruled by Herod Antipas. The tetrarch Philip, who governed the districts east of the Lake of Galilee and of the upper Jordan, was a better man than Antipas, and moreover had no cause to feel uneasy about Jesus.]

[Footnote b: It is to be noted that Mark and Matthew give the feeding of the five thousand and of the four thousand. Mark and Matthew likewise report Jesus as referring to both incidents (Mark 8:19-20 = Matt. 16:9-10). Hence, it is hard to think of a mere confusion in the use of the data. There is no real reason why both incidents could not be true.]


Mark 8:10-12 |Matt. 15:39-16:4 | 10 And straightway he entered into|39 And he sent away the the boat with his disciples, | multitudes, and entered into and came into the parts of | the boat, and came into the Dalmanutha. | borders of Magadan.[a] 11 And the Pharisees came forth,| 1 And the Pharisees and began to question with him, | Sadducees came, and tempting seeking of

[Footnote 1: The following words, to the end of ver. 3, are omitted by some of the most ancient and other important authorities.]

[Footnote a: The situation of Magadan was unknown to some early students or copyists, as it is to us, and so they changed it to the familiar Magdala, found in our common texts.]
