Mark 1:14 Commentary - Mr. D's Notes on Selected New Testament Books by Stanley Derickson

14 Now after that John was put in prison, Jesus came into Galilee, preaching the gospel of the kingdom of God

It is almost as though Christ beginning His ministry was dependent on the decline of the Baptist. Mat 4:12 mentions "Now when Jesus had heard that John was cast into prison, he departed into Galilee;"The Matthew text indicates this even further, however it would seem that Christ was in the area that John was in and when John was imprisoned, Christ left that area to go to Galilee which is north of the area attributed to John. Mark also rather indicates that Mark was in Galilee when he records, "Jesus came into Galilee."

Christ leaving upon the imprisonment does not indicate that He was afraid of trouble, but just that He knew His purpose on earth and knew that He had not finished his work. Other places in the Gospels show Christ desirous of not drawing attention to himself (Mar 7:35 ff for one) so that He would not be hindered in His work on earth.
