Magdala (măg'da-lah), tower. In the chief manuscripts and versions the name is given as "Magadan." Magdala is found only in Matthew 15:39. The parallel passage, Mark 8:10, has the "parts of Dalmanutha," on the western edge of the lake. The two regions or districts were probably near each other. The Magdala from which Mary Magdalene was named is perhaps identical with Migdal-el, Joshua 19:38, and may be the modern el-Mejdel.
