SEA OF GALILEE 35-41
Let us Cross Over to the Other Side 35-37
Jesus gives a direction to move to the other side of sea by boat
Other boats were with him this detail seems pointless yet it is important
A great windstorm not rain, but wind and waves! Why so fierce on a lake?

628 ft below sea


level in valley
winds come
down off
mountains

G. A. Smith describes his


experience there: The
atmosphere, for the most part,
hangs still and heavy but the
cold currents, as they pass
from the west, are sucked
down in vortices of air, or by
the narrow gorges that break
upon the lake. Then arise
those sudden storms for
which the region is
notorious.

Jesus gives a direction to move to the other side of sea by boat

Jesus Calms Storm and the Disciples 38-41
He was in the stern asleep contrast to chaos of the storm and state of disciples
Jesus may have purposed multiple lessons through this test of their faith:
1.Perhaps he was showing the disciples they actually doubt His care
2.Perhaps he was sharpening their faith in his word Let us go over v.35
3.Perhaps he is showing us He doesnt spare us of trials but is with us in trials
4.Perhaps he is showing that Gods will often includes difficulty and resistance
5.Perhaps he was preparing them for greater turbulence of demoniac coming

To give her to eat (Jesus valued the role of food)
