Facing Jesus in the Wind

By The Rev. Dr. Paul A. Leggett

Sunday, March 1, 2015

Series: Facing Jesus

Text:Mark 6:45-51


After Jesus has fed the five thousand in the miracle of the five loaves and two fish (Mark 6:30-44), he commands the disciples to get into a boat without him.  Once again, he sends them to the “other side,” the unseen places of danger and even death (Mark 4:35; Mark 5:1, Mark 21; Mark 8:13).  The disciples find themselves straining against “an adverse wind” (Mark 6:48).  Jesus is not with them in the boat.  Yet in the darkness Jesus comes near them.  However, he still is not in the boat with them.  In their fear they cannot recognize him.  He comes to them as the God who appeared to Moses in the burning bush as “I am.”  The wind ceases.  Jesus tells them not to fear but their hearts are hardened and they are more astounded than comforted.  We need to hold on to Jesus’ command not to fear even when the winds are raging against us.  This is the challenge of following Jesus not only for the disciples but for all of us.

II Kings

II Kings Chapters 23-25: “The Conclusion of the Books of Kings: Jerusalem on Fire”

March 4, 2015

The end now comes quickly. Josiah leads a massive reform in Jerusalem and for the first time since the period of the Judges the Passover is celebrated.  Yet it is too little too late.  Josiah’s own son turns back to the idolatry of the past.  God brings a final judgment on Judah and Jerusalem.  The city and the temple are burnt to the ground and the people are taken away into slavery in Babylon.
