Mark 6:45-52 – Walking Across the Sea

|| Matthew 14:22, 23;[1] John 6:16-21

MK6:45 Afterward Jesus told his disciples to board the fishing boat and go ahead across to Bethsaida,[2] while he dismissed the crowd. MK6:46 When Jesus had sent them all away he went into the mountains alone to pray. MK6:47 Now during the night[3] the boat was in the middle of the open sea and Jesus was alone on the shore. MK6:48 Then, at the pre-dawn hours beholding the disciples straining at the oars against opposing winds, Jesus approached them walking upon the sea intending to just pass them by.[4] MK6:49 However, when the disciples saw him walking upon the sea, at first thinking it was a phantom,[5] they screamed in fear. MK6:50 But they all did see Jesus and were very troubled. So instantly Jesus called to them and said: “Take courage! It is me![6] Do not be afraid!” MK6:51 Now Jesus approached them in the boat and the wind suddenly stopped. The disciples were awestruck [[and marveled]].[7] MK6:52 For they had not perceived the meaning of the loaves because their hearts were dull of understanding.[8]
