As in the Old Testament narratives, the synoptic Gospels used laconic expressions of time and place in story openings. For example one reads about Elijah, �And he arose and went to Zarephath� (1 Kings 17:10), and likewise about Jesus that �he arose�and went to a desert place� (Mark 1:35). The prodigal son �arose and went� to his father (Luke 15:20), and Mary �arose�and went�to a city of Judah� (Luke 1:39).
