Jesus is the ultimate teacher. His disciples learn from Him and speak as He did. Nathanael reminds us of Jacob. But better. And Jesus explains that He is the God who was seen in the OT.
When God speaks, creation bows to Him. When Jesus rebukes the storm, it bows to him and is still. Mark is telling us very clearly who Christ is and Pastor Richard is here to walk you through that account today, to help you see what the Gospel is pointing toward.
