|SCRIPTURE: “The men were amazed and asked, what kind of Man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey Him.” (Matthew 8:27 NIV)|
We have already seen that from the beginning, Jesus called the disciples “to be with Him and to send them” Part of being with Him was to progressively see Him revealed. According to (John2:11) the first of His miraculous signs, Jesus performed at Cana in Galilee, He revealed His glory, and the disciples put their faith in Him.
At this point in time, the disciples had many misconceptions about the Messiah and God’s program. As each day passed, they saw His works, Heard His words, and better understood who He was. Now up to the point of the first storm, they have seen His power over disease, demons, and even death, yet they marvel at His command of wind and nature. When Jesus arose and commanded the storm, they began to see more clearly how great this One was that sailed with them.
