  • DO YOU SENSE HIS SURPRISEIN THE WAY HE LINKED
  • 00:43:11.715 --> 00:43:13.550
  • THESE TWO PHRASES?
  • 00:43:13.650 --> 00:43:16.353
  • JESUS GOT INTO A BOAT ANDHIS FOLLOWERS WENT WITH HIM.
  • 00:43:16.453 --> 00:43:20.791

  • WITH HIM, AND SUDDENLY AGREAT RAINBOW ARCHED IN
  • 00:43:34.771 --> 00:43:37.674
  • THE SKY, OR A FLOCK OFDOVES HOVERED IN HAPPY
  • 00:43:37.774 --> 00:43:40.944
  • FORMATION OR A SEA OFGLASS MIRRORED THEIR MAST.
  • 00:43:41.044 --> 00:43:45.415
  • DON'T CHRIST FOLLOWERSENJOY A CALENDAR FULL OF
  • 00:43:45.515 --> 00:43:48.885
  • CARIBBEAN CRUISES? NO.
  • 00:43:48.985 --> 00:43:52.689
  • THIS STORY SENDS THE NOTSO SUBTLE AND NOT TOO
  • 00:43:52.789 --> 00:43:56.159
  • POPULAR REMINDER AND THATIS GETTING ON BOARD WITH
  • 00:43:56.259 --> 00:43:59.262
  • CHRIST CAN MEAN GETTINGSOAKED WITH CHRIST.
  • 00:43:59.362 --> 00:44:04.000
  • DISCIPLES CAN EXPECT SOMEROUGH SEAS AND STOUT WINDS.
  • 00:44:04.101 --> 00:44:07.771
  • JESUS SAID IN THIS WORLDYOU WILL, NOT MIGHT, MAY
  • 00:44:07.871 --> 00:44:10.173
  • OR COULD, BUT YOU WILLHAVE TRIBULATION.
  • 00:44:10.273 --> 00:44:14.644
  • SO CHRIST FOLLOWERSCONTRACT MALARIA, THEY
  • 00:44:14.745 --> 00:44:17.447
  • BURY CHILDREN, THEYBATTLE ADDICTIONS, AND AS
  • 00:44:17.547 --> 00:44:20.751
  • A RESULT THEY FACE FEARS.
  • 00:44:20.851 --> 00:44:22.886
  • FOLKS, IT'S NOT THEABSENCE OF STORMS THAT
  • 00:44:22.986 --> 00:44:26.423
  • SETS US APART. IT'SWHOM WE DISCOVER
  • 00:44:26.523 --> 00:44:29.426
  • IN THE STORM, ANUNSTIRRED CHRIST.
  • 00:44:29.526 --> 00:44:33.864
  • THE SCRIPTURE SAYSJESUS WAS SLEEPING.
  • 00:44:33.964 --> 00:44:37.000
  • NOW THERE'S A SCENE.
  • 00:44:37.100 --> 00:44:38.635
  • THE DISCIPLES SCREAMAND JESUS DREAMS.
  • 00:44:38.735 --> 00:44:41.905
  • THUNDER ROARSAND JESUS SNORES.
  • 00:44:42.005 --> 00:44:45.575
  • WHO COULD SLEEP AT A TIMELIKE THIS? COULD YOU?
  • 00:44:45.675 --> 00:44:49.045
  • AND THEN MARK'S GOSPELADDS TWO CURIOUS DETAILS.
  • 00:44:49.146 --> 00:44:52.582
  • JESUS WAS IN THE STERNASLEEP ON A PILLOW.
  • 00:44:52.682 --> 00:44:57.888
  • NOW, FIRST CENTURYFISHERMEN USED LARGE
  • 00:44:57.988 --> 00:45:01.124
  • HEAVY SIGN NETS FOR THEIRWORK, AND THEY STORED THE
  • 00:45:01.224 --> 00:45:04.594
  • NET IN A NOOK THAT WASBUILT INTO THE STERN FOR
  • 00:45:04.694 --> 00:45:07.864
  • THIS VERY PURPOSE.
  • 00:45:07.964 --> 00:45:09.900
  • NOW SLEEPING ON THE STERNDECK WAS IMPRACTICAL.
  • 00:45:10.000 --> 00:45:12.469
  • IT PROVIDED NOSPACE, NO PROTECTION.
  • 00:45:12.569 --> 00:45:14.638
  • THE SMALL COMPARTMENTBENEATH THE STERN
  • 00:45:14.738 --> 00:45:17.774
  • HOWEVER PROVIDED BOTH.
  • 00:45:17.874 --> 00:45:19.409
  • IT WAS THE MOST ENCLOSEDAND ONLY PROTECTED PART
  • 00:45:19.509 --> 00:45:22.579
  • OF THE BOAT, SO JESUS ABIT DOZY FROM THE DAY'S
  • 00:45:22.679 --> 00:45:26.917
  • ACTIVITIES CRAWLED BENEATHTHE DECK TO GET SOME SLEEP.
  • 00:45:27.017 --> 00:45:32.355
  • NOW, HERE'S WHYTHIS MATTERS.
  • 00:45:32.455 --> 00:45:35.458
  • THIS WAS APREMEDITATED SLUMBER.
  • 00:45:35.559 --> 00:45:38.695
  • JESUS DIDN'TACCIDENTALLY DOZE OFF.
  • 00:45:38.795 --> 00:45:41.231
  • IN FULL KNOWLEDGE OF THECOMING STORM, HE DECIDED
  • 00:45:41.331 --> 00:45:44.701
  • IT WAS SIESTA TIME, SO HECRAWLED INTO THE CORNER,
  • 00:45:44.801 --> 00:45:48.939
  • PUT HIS HEAD ON THEPILLOW, AND HE
  • 00:45:49.039 --> 00:45:51.441
  • DRIFTED INTO DREAMLAND.
  • 00:45:51.541 --> 00:45:54.411
  • NOW HIS SNOOZE TROUBLEDTHE DISCIPLES.
  • 00:45:54.511 --> 00:45:56.379
  • MATTHEW AND MARK RECORDTHEIR RESPONSE AS THREE
  • 00:45:56.479 --> 00:45:59.649
  • STACCATO GREEK COMMANDSAND ONE QUESTION.
  • 00:45:59.749 --> 00:46:03.186
  • THE COMMANDS ARELORD, SAVE, DYING.
  • 00:46:03.286 --> 00:46:07.290
  • AND THE QUESTION,TEACHER, DO YOU NOT CARE
  • 00:46:07.390 --> 00:46:09.826
  • THAT WE ARE PERISHING?
  • 00:46:09.926 --> 00:46:12.462
  • THEY DON'T ASK ABOUT THESTRENGTH OF CHRIST, CAN
  • 00:46:12.562 --> 00:46:16.399
  • YOU STILL THE STORM?
  • 00:46:16.499 --> 00:46:18.435
  • THEY DON'T ASK ABOUT HISKNOWLEDGE, ARE YOU
  • 00:46:18.535 --> 00:46:20.737
  • AWARE OF THE STORM?
  • 00:46:20.837 --> 00:46:22.505
  • THEY DON'T ASK ABOUT HISKNOW HOW, YOU HAVE ANY
  • 00:46:22.606 --> 00:46:24.608
  • EXPERIENCE WITH STORMS?
  • 00:46:24.708 --> 00:46:26.576
  • BUT LOOK AT THIS, THEYRAISE DOUBTS ABOUT THE
  • 00:46:26.676 --> 00:46:31.147
  • CHARACTER OF CHRIST.DO YOU NOT CARE?
  • 00:46:31.248 --> 00:46:35.385
  • NOW FOLKS,FEAR DOES THIS.
  • 00:46:35.485 --> 00:46:37.487
  • FEAR DOES THIS.
  • 00:46:37.587 --> 00:46:38.922
  • FEAR CORRODES OUR CONFIDENCEIN GOD'S GOODNESS.
  • 00:46:39.022 --> 00:46:42.125
  • HOW MANY TIMES HAVE WEASKED THE SAME QUESTION,
  • 00:46:42.225 --> 00:46:44.961
  • LORD, DON'T YOU CARE?DON'T YOU CARE?
  • 00:46:45.061 --> 00:46:48.064
  • WE WONDER IF LOVELIVES IN HEAVEN.
  • 00:46:48.164 --> 00:46:49.799
  • IF GOD CAN SLEEP IN MYSTORMS, IF HIS EYES CAN
  • 00:46:49.900 --> 00:46:52.669
  • STAY SHUT WHEN MY EYESGROW WIDE, IF HE PERMITS
  • 00:46:52.769 --> 00:46:56.239
  • STORMS AFTER I GET ONTHIS BOAT, DOES HE CARE?
  • 00:46:56.339 --> 00:46:59.476
  • YOU SEE, FEAR UNLEASHESTHIS SWARM OF DOUBTS,
  • 00:46:59.576 --> 00:47:03.880
  • ANGER STIRRING DOUBTS.
  • 00:47:03.980 --> 00:47:06.716
  • DEAR FRIEND, JESUS DOESNOT WANT YOU TO LIVE IN
  • 00:47:06.816 --> 00:47:11.288
  • THIS STATE OF FEAR.AND NOR DO YOU.
  • 00:47:11.388 --> 00:47:15.358
  • WE'VE ALL LEARNED THEHIGH COST OF FEAR,
  • 00:47:15.458 --> 00:47:19.095
  • SO THE QUESTION OFJESUS IS A GOOD ONE.
  • 00:47:19.195 --> 00:47:21.631
  • HE LIFTS HIS HEAD FROMTHAT PILLOW, HE STEPS OUT
  • 00:47:21.731 --> 00:47:25.335
  • FROM THE STERN INTO THE STORM,AND HERE'S HIS QUESTION.
  • 00:47:25.435 --> 00:47:30.073
  • NOW WHY ARE YOU FEARFUL,OH YE OF LITTLE FAITH.
  • 00:47:30.173 --> 00:47:34.778
  • THE SCRIPTURE SAYS JESUSGOT UP, GAVE A COMMAND TO
  • 00:47:34.878 --> 00:47:38.548
  • THE WIND AND WAVES, ANDIT BECAME COMPLETELY CALM.
  • 00:47:38.648 --> 00:47:43.386
  • AND HE HANDLED THE GREATQUAKING WITH A GREAT CALMING.
  • 00:47:43.486 --> 00:47:47.290
  • THE SEA BECAME AS STILLAS A FROZEN LAKE, AND THE
  • 00:47:47.390 --> 00:47:51.227
  • DISCIPLES WERE LEFTWONDERING WHAT KIND OF
  • 00:47:51.328 --> 00:47:53.897
  • MAN IS THIS, EVEN THEWINDS AND WAVES OBEY HIM.
  • 00:47:53.997 --> 00:48:00.470
  • WHAT A QUESTION. WHATKIND OF MAN INDEED.
  • 00:48:00.570 --> 00:48:05.141
  • TURNING TYPHOON TIME INTONAP TIME, SILENCING WAVES
  • 00:48:05.241 --> 00:48:08.712

  • WITH SUFFICIENT COURAGETO SEND A FINAL LOVE
  • 00:48:10.947 --> 00:48:13.249
