Title:

WHEN JESUS PASSED BY
Mark 6:45-56

Immediately he made his disciples get into the boat and go before him to the other side, to Bethsaida, while he dismissed the crowd. And after he had taken leave of them, he went up on the mountain to pray. And when evening came, the boat was out on the sea, and he was alone on the land. And he saw that they were making headway painfully, for the wind was against them.

Mark 6:45-56

And about the fourth watch of the night he came to them, walking on the sea. He meant to pass by them, but when they saw him walking on the sea they thought it was a ghost, and cried out, for they all saw him and were terrified. But immediately he spoke to them and said, Take heart; it is I. Do not be afraid. And he got into the boat with them, and the wind ceased.

Mark 6:45-56

And they were utterly astounded,for they did not understand about the loaves, but their hearts were hardened. When they had crossed over, they came to land at Gennesaret and moored to the shore. And when they got out of the boat, the people immediately recognized him and ran about the whole region and began to bring the sick people on their beds to wherever they heard he was. 

Mark 6:45-56

And wherever he came, in villages, cities, or countryside, they laid the sick in the marketplaces and implored him that they might touch even the fringe of his garment. And as many as touched it were made well.

Mark 6:45-56

III. How should we respond?

Immediately he made his disciples get into the boat and go before him to the other side, to Bethsaida, while he dismissed the crowd. And after he had taken leave of them, he went up on the mountain to pray. - Mark 6:45-46

When the people saw the sign that he had done, they said,This is indeed the Prophet who is to come into the world! Perceiving then that they were about to come and take him by force to make him king, Jesus withdrew again to the mountain by himself. John 6:14-15

And when evening came, the boat was out on the sea, and he was alone on the land.And he saw that they were making headway painfully, for the wind was against them. And about the fourth watch of the night he came to them, walking on the sea. He meant to pass by them. - Mark 6:47-48

And he said,I will make all my goodness pass before you and will proclaim before you my name The Lord....And the Lord said, Behold, there is a place by me where you shall stand on the rock,and while my glory passes by I will put you in a cleft of the rock, and I will cover you with my hand until I have passed by. Then I will take away my hand, and you shall see my back, but my face shall not be seen. Exodus 33:19-23

And he said, Go out and stand on the mount before the Lord.
- 1 Kings 19:11

II. How did the disciples respond?

But when they saw him walking on the sea they thought it was a ghost, and cried out, for they all saw him and were terrified. But immediately he spoke to them and said,Take heart; it is I. Do not be afraid.And he got into the boat with them, and the wind ceased. And they were utterly astounded,for they did not understand about the loaves, but their hearts were hardened. - Mark 6:49-52

who alone stretched out the heavens and trampled the waves of the sea...Behold, he passes by me, and I see him not; he moves on, but I do not perceive him. - Job 9: 8, 11

...they were utterly astounded, for they did not understand about the loaves, but their hearts were hardened. - Mark 6:51b-52

III. How should we respond?

Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine. When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and through the rivers, they shall not overwhelm you; when you walk through fire you shall not be burned, and the flame shall not consume you. For I am the Lord your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior. - Isaiah 43:1b-3a
