Miracles of Jesus: Calming the sea

Mark 4-5

Jesus is so facinating to me as a person, and like the disciples felt sometimes, a little confusing. I've gone through a few miracles already, but with the ones I have remaining I am going to kind of outline them. The reactions of the people and to Jesus are all unique.

Miracle: Calming the Sea

Who: The Disciples

Where: Sea (not sure of exact sea in this account)

What Happened: Jesus and the disciples got into a ship before leaving Jesus said "Let us pass over unto the other side." Jesus is asleep in the back on a ship on a pillow and a great storm arises with a surety of shipwreck. The disciples awake him and say "carest not that we perish?" Jesus wakes us and rebukes the wind with "Peace, be still". The wind ceases.

Faith factor: None/ Jesus says to them, "Why ar ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?"

Disciples' Response: Feared exceedingly that the winds and sea obey him.

Jesus' Response: none
