_ _ And they departed into a desert place by ship privately “over the Sea of Galilee, which is the Sea of Tiberias,” says John (John 6:1), the only one of the Evangelists who so fully describes it; the others having written when their readers were supposed to know something of it, while the last wrote for those at a greater distance of time and place. This “desert place” is more definitely described by Luke (Luke 9:10) as “belonging to the city called Bethsaida.” This must not be confounded with the town so called on the western side of the lake (see on Matthew 11:21). This town lay on its northeastern side, near where the Jordan empties itself into it: in Gaulonitis, out of the dominions of Herod Antipas, and within the dominions of Philip the Tetrarch (Luke 3:1), who raised it from a village to a city, and called it Julias, in honor of Julia, the daughter of Augustus [Josephus, Antiquities, 18.2, 1].
They departed Across a creek or corner of the lake.
When Jesus heard [of it
], he departed thence by ship into a desert place apart: and when the people had heard [thereof
], they followed him on foot out of the cities.
