And when much people were gathered together, and were come to him out of every city, he spake by a parable:
Matthew 13:2
And large crowds gathered to Him, so He got into a boat and sat down, and the whole crowd was standing on the beach.
Mark 4:1
He began to teach again by the sea. And such a very large crowd gathered to Him that He got into a boat in the sea and sat down; and the whole crowd was by the sea on the land.
