The Gospel Lesson for Sunday, June 21, 2009

This week I just included the gospel lesson. This is also my translation of the Greek. Please leave any comments, ideas or suggestions. Thanks.

Mark 4:35-41 - And he said to them on that day when early evening had come, "Let us go across to the other side." And after he sent away the crowds, they took him along as he was in the boat, and other boats were with him. And there came a great squall of wind, and the waves broke over the boat so that already the boat was filling. And he was in the stern upon a cushion sleeping. And they awoke him and said to him, "Teacher, you don’t care that we are perishing, do you?" And after he woke up, he rebuked the wind, and he said to the sea, "Be silent. Be still." And the wind dropped. And there was a great calm. And he said to them, "Why are you cowardly? How is it that you have no faith?" And they feared a great fear, and they said to one another, "Who then is he that even the wind and the sea obey him?"


  1. At this early stage, before doing much research, I think I'm going to focus on faith rather than power, maybe the challenge of maintaining your faith in difficult situations.

  2. I think there might be something in the contrasting words for fear.
