After feeding the four thousand, Jesus got into a boat with his disciples and ‘went to the region of Dalmanutha’ (Mark 8:10) – a region probably to the north west of the Sea of Galillee. However, he is tracked down by a group of Pharisees who began to question him and ask him for a sign, ‘To test him’ (Mark 8:11). The attitude of the Pharisees did not impress Jesus and after a sharp confrontation, and probably in an attempt to get away from them, Jesus got back into the boat and ‘crossed to the other side’ (Mark 8:13). The conversation that followed between Jesus and his disciples is an intriguing one.
