Magadan
Excerpt from the Lexham Bible Dictionary, the most advanced Bible dictionary.
A place located on the Sea of Galilee to which Jesus sailed following the feeding of the 4,000 people (Matt 15:39). In Mark’s parallel account (Mark 8:10), it is called Dalmanutha (Δαλμανουθά, Dalmanoutha). At Mark 8:10, there are textual variants that include Μαγδαλα (Magdala) and Μαγαδα (Magada) as the name of this location, but based on the witnesses that support these readings, it is likely that these readings are scribal corrections to align Mark’s account with Matthew’s. To complicate matters further, some textual witnesses at Matt 15:39 read Μαγδαλαν (Magdalan), while others read Μαγεδαν (Magedan). These are also likely later changes that are not original to the text.
