What Manner of Man is He?

Jesus had just finished preaching to a multitude. He told His disciples let us get into the boat and go to other side. We are talking about Sea of Galilee in Israel. These guys were rowing across. The Sea of Galilee is about 14 miles across. It would take a while to row across. Like most inland lakes, a storm arose. All these men are experienced fishermen. They have lived and worked in good or bad weather. But this storm was particularly bad. They all became afraid. Jesus on the other hand was sleeping on the rear of the boat. At first they didn’t wake Him up. But the storm got really bad. Finally they went to Jesus and woke Him. They started pleading their case about the storm. Jesus reacted differently than they expected. He rebuked them. He said what is wrong with you. Why are you afraid? Why don’t you have faith? Jesus rebuked the storm and said, Peace be still. They looked at Him and said who is this man that the storm obeys? Jesus said greater thing shall you do because I go to My Father. If that is true, then why are you afraid and why don’t you have faith?
