Dalmanutha
Bible Meaning: Slow firebrand
Strong's Concordance #G1148

Dalmanutha is located on the western side of the Sea of Galilee. Its exact location is open to debate. After Jesus' miraculous feeding of 4,000 people, he and his disciples got in a ship and sailed to the area.

The Pharisees, soon after Jesus' boat landed at Dalmanutha, demanded he show them a sign from heaven to prove his true purpose and identity. The Lord, of course, refused to perform such a miracle on demand.

Important verses

Mark 8:1, 6, 9 - 12
In those days the multitude being very great, and having nothing to eat, Jesus called his disciples unto him . . .

And he commanded the people to sit down on the ground: and he took the seven loaves, and gave thanks, and brake, and gave to his disciples to set before them; and they did set them before the people.

And they that had eaten were about four thousand: and he sent them away. And straightway he entered into a ship with his disciples, and came into the parts of Dalmanutha.

And the Pharisees came forth, and began to question with him, seeking of him a sign from heaven, tempting him. And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and saith, Why doth this generation seek after a sign? verily I say unto you, There shall no sign be given unto this generation.
