used, as it is at Mk 1:40, to begin a pericope, and what Mark assumes that KAI
indicates regarding the temporal relationship between incidents that the KAI
joins. But I take it that you have not actually done spade work in this matter
or -- as I asked you previously to no avail -- into the work of K.L. Schmidt on
what Mark is up to in this section of the Gospel.
And as others have pointed out it is justified by social science considerations
about where lepers would most likely be or allowed to be vis a vis a synagogue.
