Then he got into the boat and his disciples followed him. Without warning, a furious storm came up on the lake, so that the waves swept over the boat. But Jesus was sleeping. The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We’re going to drown!”
He replied, “You of little faith, why are you so afraid?” Then he got up and rebuked the winds and the waves, and it was completely calm.
The men were amazed and asked, “What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!” Matthew 8:24-27
How could Jesus sleep?
Why would He say they had “little faith.”
Isn’t He the best place for their request?
I listen to a variety of teachers (diversity in seminary education…yeah!), one said Jesus expected THEM to speak to the waves themselves!
What are your thoughts?
Should we today be able to do that??
