“And from there.” The fact that Mark 10:1 starts with, “And from there,” makes it seem like he was going from Capernaum (9:33), but that is not the case. One of the things that Bible readers must become accustomed to is that the word “and” simply means there is a flow in the story from the author’s perspective. Jesus did go from Capernaum to the Transjordan, the land East of the Jordan River (Mark 10:1), but not before he went through Samaria to Jerusalem and then to the Transjordan. In fact, the entire record of Luke 9:51-18:14 occurs between Mark 9:50 and Mark 10:1. The phrase “beyond the Jordan” refers to Perea, the portion of the kingdom of Herod the Great occupying the eastern side of the Jordan River valley.
