Mark 1:28 Commentary - Whedon's Commentary on the Old and New Testaments

28. Spread… throughout… Galilee The phrase, region round about Galilee, would be more correctly rendered, the surrounding region of Galilee. Our Lord did not leave Galilee, but took a circuit in it. It went abroad that a beneficent being had appeared, at whose touch and voice disease and damage and leprosy and demons disappeared.

The followers of the Saviour were even for centuries called by the Pagans Galileans. The philosopher Epictetus, who lived after the time of the Emperor Nero, asked if a philosopher can become indifferent to suffering, like the Galileans, meaning thereby the Christians. And the Emperor Julian, surnamed the Apostate, in the third century, who was cut off in the midst of his efforts to destroy Christianity, cried with his dying voice, addressing Christ, “Thou hast conquered, O Galilean!”
