0:28the holy Gospel According to Saint Mark
0:31chapter 6 verses 45 through 56.
0:36immediately Jesus made his disciples get
0:40into the boat and go on ahead of him to
0:42bethsaida while he dismissed the crowd
0:44after leaving them he went up on a
0:47Mountainside to pray
0:49when evening came the boat was in the
0:51middle of the lake and he was alone on
0:53land he saw the disciples straining at
0:56the oars because the wind was against
0:58them about the Fourth Watch of the night
1:01he went out to them walking on the lake
1:03he was about to pass by them but when
1:06they saw him walking in the lake they
1:08thought he was a ghost and they cried
1:10out because they all saw him and were
1:14immediately he spoke to them and said
1:16take courage it is I don’t be afraid and
1:20then he climbed into the boat with them
1:22and the wind died down they were
1:25completely amazed for they had not
1:27understood about the loaves the hearts
1:29were hardened when they had crossed over
1:32they landed at ganesaret and anchored
1:35there as soon as they got out of the
1:37boat people recognized Jesus they ran
1:40throughout the whole region and carried
1:42the sick on mats to wherever they heard
1:44he was and wherever he went into
1:46Villages towns and countrysides they
1:49placed the sick in the marketplaces They
1:51begged him to let them touch even the
1:53edge of his cloak and all who touched
1:56him were healed
1:58in the name of Jesus
2:01the gospel text says immediately Jesus
2:04made his disciples get into the boat and
2:07go before him
2:09now this sets up the context if you
2:11would but remember this story doesn’t
2:13begin here this story is a continuation
2:16of last week’s story last week we read
2:19about and heard about the miracle of
2:21Jesus taking a little boy’s lunch of
2:24Five Loaves and two fishes giving thanks
2:27and then multiplying those fishes and
2:30feeding a crowd a crowd so large it
2:32contained five thousand men as well as
2:35women and children on top of that number
2:37and what you don’t know because the
2:41gospel of Mark doesn’t give us this
2:43little bit of a back story is that
2:46something else is going on here and so
2:49it says that Jesus made his disciples
2:52get into the boat the Greek is way
2:55stronger it’s an agazzo and it means to
3:00compel to force so what’s happening here
3:03is no sooner does Jesus finish the
3:06feeding of the five thousand something
3:08happens we’ll talk about about that and
3:10Jesus doesn’t want his disciples to get
3:13caught up in all of the nonsense and so
3:15he tells these fishermen to do something
3:17they normally would not do
3:19get into a boat and cross the Sea of
3:23Galilee go to bethsaida
3:25at night and the reason why they would
3:27not normally do this is because they’re
3:30fishermen and they know that at night
3:32what happens in the evening is is that
3:34the winds kick up and this is not a
3:37place to be traveling on at night
3:39because of the Winds but it says he made
3:42them he forced them he compelled them so
3:46you can kind of tell by the Greek verb
3:48here that those probably a little bit of
3:51a discussion Jesus says hey guys I need
3:53you to get in the boat I need your head
3:54across over to betseta
3:58yeah now I go ahead and go get in the
4:00boat guys but
4:03um the wind you familiar with what
4:05happens here at night I mean you live in
4:06Capernaum you gotta know I know guys I
4:09need you to get in the boat and go
4:11all right
4:12if you say so that’s kind of the force
4:14of the of the verb here now why the
4:17answer is why is he having to compel
4:19them and force them to do this well let
4:21me read a little bit from the Gospel of
4:22John we’ll get the context from that
4:24John chapter 6 verses 1 through 15.
4:27after this Jesus went away to the other
4:29side the Sea of Galilee which is the Sea
4:31of Tiberius and a large crowd was
4:33following him and because they saw the
4:35signs that he was doing on the sick
4:37Jesus went up on the mountain and there
4:39he sat down with his disciples now the
4:41Passover the Feast of the Jews was at
4:42hand lifting up his eyes then and seeing
4:45that a large crowd was coming toward him
4:47Jesus said to Philip where are we to buy
4:49bread so these people may eat he said
4:52this to test him for he knew what he
4:54would do Philip answered him 200 denarii
4:57worth of bread would not be enough for
4:58each of them to eat a little one of his
5:01disciples Andrew Simon Peter’s brother
5:03said to him well there’s a boy here who
5:05has five barley Loaves and two fish but
5:07what are they for so many Jesus said
5:09have the people sit down now there was
5:11much grass green green grass in the
5:13place so the men sat down about five
5:15thousand in number Jesus then took the
5:18Loaves and when he had given thanks he
5:20distributed them to those who were
5:22seated so also the fish as much as they
5:24wanted and when they had eaten their
5:27fill he told his disciples gather up the
5:29leftover fragments that nothing may be
5:31lost so they gathered them up filled the
5:3312 baskets with fragments from the five
5:36barley loaves left by those who had
5:38eaten and when the people saw the sign
5:41that he had done they said this is
5:44indeed the prophet who has come into the
5:48they recognized who Jesus was
5:53and then it says this perceiving that
5:55they then were going to come and take
5:57him by force to make him King
6:01Jesus withdrew again to the mountain by
6:05so that’s what’s going on Jesus performs
6:07this miracle which hearkens back to the
6:10feeding of the Israelites in the
6:13wilderness with the Bread of Heaven and
6:16they recognize them prophetically what’s
6:19going on here
6:21that’s the guy who Moses told us about
6:25and they wanted to make him King by
6:27force that’s what’s going on now keep
6:29this in mind
6:30there are a bunch of liberals out there
6:32who think that the gospel is all about
6:33going out and conquering poverty or you
6:37know things like this right solving the
6:39world hunger problem there’s nothing
6:41wrong and I mean this it’s a good work
6:43to care for those who are in need but
6:46note here that they wanted to make Jesus
6:48king and Jesus has the ability to feed
6:52people multiply Loaves and Fishes and
6:55Jesus if he wanted to could have been
6:57King and there would have never been a
6:59welfare problem everybody would have had
7:01food on their table remember it was it
7:03which is the politicians was out there
7:06stumping and basically saying you know I
7:08promise a chicken in every pot
7:11Jesus could have made good on that
7:14but he didn’t do that which tells you
7:16something the gospel is not about
7:18solving the world’s hunger problem at
7:20least when it comes to
7:22physical bread it is about solving the
7:24world’s hunger problem when it comes to
7:26the bread of life who is Jesus so keep
7:29that in mind so we go back then to our
7:32text that’s the context they wanted to
7:34make Jesus King by force
7:37and this is when Jesus says boys I need
7:39you get in the boat
7:41head across but what wind no go but but
7:47so keep this in mind Jesus has given
7:49them a task to do it doesn’t make any
7:52sense they wouldn’t have chosen this on
7:54their own
7:55so here’s what it says and after he had
7:58taken leave of them he went up on the
8:01mountain to pray
8:02and when evening came the boat was out
8:05on the sea he was alone on the land and
8:08he saw that they were making Headway
8:10painfully for the wind
8:13was against them they’re on the water
8:16treadmill if you would they’re doing
8:19and they’re going nowhere they’re
8:21getting nowhere and remember Jesus is
8:24the one who told them to do this and it
8:26said that he had to force them to compel
8:29them to do this they knew that this was
8:31what they were going to be doing
8:33thanks Jesus
8:36now think of it this way this story is a
8:40it tells us and kind of shows us that
8:42Jesus instructs not only with words but
8:45he also instructs via object lessons so
8:48here the crowds want to make Jesus King
8:50by force and Jesus sends his disciples
8:53to go do something really mundane
8:56row across and oh it’s really difficult
8:59and it’s not going to be easy
9:01so much for the kingly thing I’m sure
9:04after hearing the crowds want to make
9:05Jesus king the disciples were sitting
9:06and going oh can I be like Chief of
9:09Staff can I can I you know right this is
9:11what they’re thinking this is a great
9:13moment of glory and Jesus just takes
9:15that balloon and Pops it
9:17no guys I want you to go to do something
9:18really mundane you’re going to feel like
9:20you’re going nowhere so
9:22this is what’s happening so while Jesus
9:25is praying he can miraculously see
9:28really far and see that they’re making
9:31no Headway against us because remember
9:33you know he’s up on a mountain they’re
9:35out on the sea they got to be tiny
9:37microscopics back to the human eye but
9:40he can see what’s going on but why
9:42because he’s God in human flesh
9:44so he saw that they were making
9:46Headway painfully the wind was against
9:49them and about the Fourth Watch of the
9:51night he came to them now notice it says
9:52that when he was on the mountain he was
9:54also praying
9:55now this is a kind of little side note
9:57here Jesus is God in human flesh
10:02he has humbled himself
10:05humbled himself and become obedient to
10:07God he has emptied himself of his divine
10:11power for the most part he makes very
10:12sparing use of it if he would and so as
10:15the god-man he’s really here as our
10:18brother as one of us and rather than
10:22flexing his God muscles because he is
10:25as a man he prays to his father
10:29and Jesus when he taught us to pray he
10:31taught us that it begins with glorifying
10:35God and then humbly asking God for the
10:38things that we need you can see this in
10:40the Lord’s prayer Lord teach us to pray
10:41says when you pray say Our Father who
10:43art in heaven Hallowed holy is your name
10:46your kingdom come your will be done
10:48right and then come the petitions give
10:52us this day our daily bread
10:54notice the humble posture here Lord you
10:57are king of kings you are Lord of lords
10:58I am your servant I am in need of your
11:02provision give us this day our daily
11:04bread this is how this goes now there is
11:06a big error that’s going on in much of
11:09evangelicalism today and that error
11:11teaches you rather than to humbly pray
11:13to stretch out an audacious Faith
11:16instead and start decreeing and
11:18declaring and it goes something to the
11:20effect of I decree and declare that I am
11:22the head and not the tale I decree and
11:24declare that I am not poor that I am
11:27rich I decl decree and declare that I
11:29have perfect Divine health and wealth
11:31and all this kind of nonsense
11:34to which I would say that’s not prayer
11:37that’s something different
11:38okay if your child those of you who have
11:40children if you’re 16 year old when they
11:44were 16 came up to and said dad I decree
11:47and declare that you’re going to give me
11:49a car
11:50would you have responded well I decree
11:52and declare go to your room you’re
11:53grounded for a year
11:55you probably would have right
11:58decreeing and declaring is not prayer
12:00and even Jesus God in human flesh he
12:07notice that when he multiplied the
12:09Loaves and Fishes he did not say I
12:10decree and declare multiplication
12:13he said a prayer and he gave thanks
12:16humbly receiving from the father even
12:18the miracle to perform to multiply the
12:21fishes our stance and our posture should
12:23be no different those who are teaching
12:25you to decree and declare if you ever
12:27hear about anybody who’s a preacher tell
12:29you to decree and declare on the radio
12:31or on the television turn it off
12:34they’re lying to you it is the devil who
12:37says tell these stones to become bread
12:40decree and declare these things that’s
12:42not how God operates that’s not how
12:44Jesus operates that’s not prayer that is
12:49demonic presumption at that so if you
12:52ever hear any decreeing declaring people
12:53turn them off they’re not speaking the
12:57coming back now so here’s Jesus on the
13:00Mountainside and he’s praying and he’s
13:02praying for his disciples he sees that
13:04they’re struggling he knows all about it
13:06and he cares for them but the story then
13:09continues about the Fourth Watch of the
13:11night so it’s three in the morning
13:16thanks Jesus
13:21why did he send us out here in the
13:24middle we knew this was going to be this
13:26way right okay and they’re getting
13:28nowhere and it says three in the morning
13:31about Fourth Watch of the night he comes
13:33to them walking on the sea
13:36and here’s the weirdest part he meant to
13:39pass by them
13:40that was his intention hey guys keep at
13:44it I’ll meet you at Shore
13:46good job see you there
13:49no joke all right but plans changed even
13:53for Jesus because well he meant to pass
13:57by that but what they saw him walking on
13:59the sea they thought it was a ghost and
14:01they cried out for they all saw him and
14:02they were terrified
14:04so local Legend down the Sea of Galilee
14:06goes something like this is that when a
14:10when the fishermen are out at Sea I mean
14:13the Sea of Galilee is actually it’s a
14:15lake it’s not that big of a lake but
14:16because of the Winds and the way the
14:18topography Works a Squall can come up
14:20pretty quick and it’ll sink a boat you
14:22sink a boat you’re gonna you’re gonna
14:23drown a sailor this is how this goes and
14:25so the way the um the local Legend if
14:28you would the mythology is is that if
14:30you see a ghost on the Sea of Galilee
14:33it’s a dead Mariner come to let you know
14:37you’re next
14:39okay so that’s the way the legend goes
14:42so they see Jesus walking on the water
14:45they’re going ah we’re doing right so
14:49the legend comes into play and Jesus has
14:52to correct this so his intention was to
14:54say keep at it boys but they freaked out
14:56and so he gets into the boat is how this
14:58goes so he meant to pass by they saw him
15:02walking on the sea they thought it was a
15:03ghost he cried out for they all saw him
15:05and they were terrified
15:08immediately Jesus spoke to them and said
15:11take heart it is I do not be afraid not
15:14the best translation let me clean this
15:16up let me give you a more literal
15:17translation take courage I am
15:21fear not
15:24I am Jesus invokes the Divine name from
15:27Exodus chapter 3. remember Moses is
15:30speaking to God in the burning bush and
15:33God is commissioning Moses to go to
15:36pharaoh to say Let My People Go of
15:39course Moses wasn’t exactly gung-ho on
15:41the plan tried to get out of it and
15:43finally he acquiesces to the Lord’s
15:46commissioning and he says who should I
15:48say sent me what’s your name
15:51and God says I am that I am tell them I
15:55am has sent you so here Jesus they’re
15:58terrified they’re thinking they’re
16:00doomed that he’s a ghost and he says
16:03take courage boys
16:06I am
16:08fear not
16:09he’s saying he’s God and that he has
16:12them and see that’s kind of the whole
16:14point of this story this story is all
16:17about the fact that we like the
16:21disciples have been given very mundane
16:24tasks to do and our tasks are difficult
16:28and sometimes we feel like we’re getting
16:30nowhere with them that everything is
16:31against us in this task this is an
16:34object lesson if you would Jesus set
16:35them off to do something mundane so they
16:37get this notion out of their head about
16:39the bread King right so they’re out
16:42doing and they’re not even getting a
16:43full night’s sleep the the in the
16:44previous pericope they were he Jesus was
16:46concerned that they needed to get some
16:48rest and relax and then this time he
16:50sends them out in the middle of the
16:51night they’re not getting any sleep
16:53they’re not getting anywhere and then
16:56Jesus shows up and they think it’s a
16:58ghost and the whole idea here is is that
17:01Jesus watches over them and prays for
17:05them and has them in the palm of his
17:07hand and he has he’s taken care of of
17:09them fear not take courage boys I am I’m
17:12God I’m God for you I’m here to be with
17:15you and even in the midst of a mundane
17:18task that feels like you’re getting
17:19nowhere I’m still with you and even in
17:21the midst of your fears I am with you
17:24now Jesus hasn’t asked us to do the
17:26mundane thing of crossing the Sea of
17:28Galilee in the middle of the night which
17:30is just about as smart as fighting a
17:32land war in Asia okay it just is not a
17:35smart thing to do but Jesus has all he
17:39has called us all to tasks that seem
17:41mundane and difficult he’s called us to
17:44be husbands to be wives to be mothers to
17:47be fathers
17:49to be employees you think of something
17:52what is more mundane than somebody being
17:54a slave right and what is it that
17:57scripture tells slaves to do
17:59obey their masters
18:01as if Christ is their Master not their
18:04physical Master there so we can serve
18:08God and serve neighbor in the ordinary
18:12things in which we’re called to do in
18:14our vocations and we are also called to
18:17go and make disciples and this isn’t
18:19done through flashy shows or calling
18:22Jesus of the bread King who wants to
18:24make you healthy wealthy and wise it’s
18:27by calling pen Sinners to repent and to
18:29be forgiven by the shed blood of Christ
18:31and when you do that it seems like the
18:33world is oftentimes against you and I
18:35don’t know if you’ve noticed but the
18:36society seems to be getting more and
18:38more hostile to this in fact I just read
18:40a story before coming to church out of
18:42Kentucky that the state of Kentucky
18:44corrections you know facilities have
18:48required that those pastors who are
18:50serving as volunteers
18:53you know in the youth correctional
18:54facilities they had to sign a document
18:56saying that they will not say that
18:59homosexuality is a sin
19:01and any Pastor who refused to sign the
19:03document has been dismissed
19:06all right seems like everything is
19:09against us does it not yet we are to
19:11keep at the task fear not Jesus is he is
19:14he is the I am
19:16take courage fear not he’s with us and
19:18so he right now is in heaven
19:21the scripture says there’s one main
19:24mediator between God and man the Lord
19:26Jesus Christ
19:27so he is up in heaven your king he sees
19:30you from the top of Mount Zion if you
19:33would and he looks down and he sees you
19:35toiling and he is with you and even if
19:38he seems like he’s passed by you and
19:40you’re going to have to continue to row
19:41all night figuratively speaking right
19:43know this that he’s gone ahead of you to
19:45be with you why because he has gone
19:47ahead of us in our death
19:50and he has died for our sins and he’s
19:52risen from the grave and now we can talk
19:55a little bit about water if you want
19:57this is a good place to talk about it
19:59water remember how we’ve talked about in
20:01the past how water especially stormy
20:04water is kind of symbolic of the chaos
20:06of the curse of the creation right and
20:09that in the Book of Revelation we see
20:11that Before the Throne of Christ there
20:12is a glassy and calm sea here the storm
20:15is not stormed the sea is not storming
20:18it’s just windy and difficult to deal
20:20it’s kind of chaotic right we could talk
20:23about another thing here there’s kind of
20:25a theme in the Old Testament
20:26typologically have you ever read of
20:28Leviathan yeah you know what Leviathan
20:30Leviathan is supposedly this Dragon
20:33creature that lives in the Deep you know
20:35who eats you and swallows you whole and
20:38so Jesus by walking on the water in a
20:40way is demonstrating that he’s walking
20:43on the back of Leviathan just skating
20:45across the top of Leviathan has no power
20:47over him Jesus has conquered the Devil
20:50he’s conquered the grave he’s conquered
20:52the deep and he has come back and now
20:55you in the waters of your baptism you
20:59have been buried with Christ you have
21:01been raised with Christ
21:03you are in him you need not fear you can
21:06take courage Jesus is the I am and he’s
21:10the I am for you and so water now for us
21:13is no longer about chaos and difficulty
21:15water for us is well it flows from the
21:18pierced side of Jesus from his side
21:21flowed water and blood together and so
21:24that water and blood filled the
21:26baptismal font when you were brought
21:27here when you were baptized in the name
21:30of the Father the Son and the Holy
21:32your sins were washed away you were
21:35regenerated and made new in Christ and
21:38so water has a completely different
21:39significance for us and so keep this in
21:42mind your Jesus has washed you he has
21:45cleansed you you are in him and he loves
21:47you and he sees you in your toil and
21:50your struggle he sees you in your
21:52day-to-day grind where you feel like no
21:54matter how hard you work you never get
21:56ahead he knows that and yet these are
21:58the tasks that he has set us to so that
22:00we need to so that we don’t get caught
22:02up in the nonsense of the bread King
22:04thing right similar way
22:08then it says this when they had crossed
22:11over they came to land against it and
22:15moored to the shore they were anchored
22:17to the shore and when they got out of
22:19the boat the people immediately
22:20recognized Jesus and ran about to the
22:23whole region and began to bring the sick
22:25on their beds to wherever they heard he
22:28was you know this reminds me of I’ve
22:31been kind of thinking about this and
22:32I’ve been kind of debating myself in
22:34some senses this reminds me of like a
22:36World War II beachhead this is Normandy
22:39right Jesus comes in on a boat he lands
22:42and now he’s taking ground it’s similar
22:44to that and so the defeat of the devil
22:47is sure uncertain because what he’s
22:49doing is he’s setting the captives free
22:52and in a similar way kind of using that
22:54theme we’ve all seen the newsreels from
22:56World War II when a city in France that
22:59had been under Nazi occupation and
23:02subjugation had been liberated that’s
23:04the word that they use this city has
23:07been liberated Paris has been liberated
23:10you know they get all the towns that
23:12were liberated they would say that’s
23:13what it is this is kind of a foretaste
23:16of that if you would on this day the
23:18devil who had put these people into
23:20subjugation had had tormented them with
23:23sickness disease death
23:25never letting them hear the word
23:27straight of the Forgiveness of sins
23:30Jesus lands and he starts liberating
23:35ah it’s a good picture right so Jesus he
23:38always walked ashore and you can tell
23:41the King has
23:43the King has landed and here’s the best
23:45part about it is that we now learn from
23:49this text remember a few weeks back
23:51about the woman with the flow of blood
23:53for 12 years remember her story
23:57remember how she decided to sneak a
23:59miracle and she
24:01just kind of skated into the crowd and
24:03knew that if I just touched the fringes
24:06of His Garment which were those sitsy
24:08oath that the the Jewish boys would wear
24:11at the time right and she was healed
24:13immediately remember that well the story
24:15of her healing had got out the news had
24:18gotten around you know what that woman
24:20did she went and told everybody Jesus
24:23healed me let me tell you how it
24:25happened it’s the most amazing thing
24:27ever I thought I was done for I thought
24:30for sure when Jesus turned around and
24:32said who touched me that ah now I was
24:35gonna get it and I told him everything
24:37that I had done and his words to me were
24:43your faith has saved you
24:45be healthy from The Scourge literal
24:49and so what did she do she went and told
24:51everybody about how great Jesus was and
24:54the text says this when and wherever
24:57Jesus came in villages cities or
24:59Countryside they laid the sick in the
25:01marketplaces and they implored him that
25:03they might touch even The Fringe of His
25:04Garment there it is The Fringe those
25:06little tassels because they heard the
25:08report of the woman who had been healed
25:10and as many as touched him were made
25:14and folks I’m here to declare to you
25:17today that as many as have touched Jesus
25:20have been made well and that’s you
25:24you have touched Jesus
25:27you’ve been washed with his blood in the
25:30waters of your baptism when we celebrate
25:33the Lord’s Supper here Jesus has touched
25:36you and has fed you with his very body
25:38and blood for the Forgiveness of your
25:40sins and you have been made well and you
25:43say but my body is falling apart oh
25:46don’t worry don’t worry because when you
25:49were baptized you were put into Jesus’s
25:52death you’re already dead your baptism
25:55killed you and it also made you alive
25:58and so your body is taking a little bit
26:01of time to catch up to your death
26:02certificate which is your baptismal
26:04certificate and once you catch up you’re
26:07with Jesus and then on the last day he’s
26:10going to return in glory and he’s going
26:12to raise your body from the dead reunite
26:15spirit and body together and then World
26:17Without End World Without End New
26:21Creation new Heavens new Earth no more
26:24watching the television and seeing
26:26animals not dying on killing each other
26:28no more having to worry about being bit
26:31by bugs or having well diseases and
26:34illnesses and wasting things like that
26:36no forever and ever World Without End
26:40because Jesus has healed anyone whom he
26:43has touched and you who are in him he
26:45has touched you you are well you are
26:50you are in Christ he has liberated you
26:53and he will raise you again from the day
26:55on the great day of the wedding Feast of
26:58the Lamb when we get to see our King
27:01face to face what a glorious day that
27:04will be and this text all points to it
27:07points to the great savior that we have
27:09and this is them fitting for us to end
27:12with Paul’s word from our epistle Paul
27:15writes for this reason
27:17I bow my knees before the father from
27:20whom every family in heaven on Earth is
27:22named that according to his riches of
27:25his glory he may Grant you to be
27:27strengthened with power through his
27:29spirit in your inner being
27:31so that Christ might dwell in your
27:33hearts through faith that you being
27:35rooted and grounded in love may have
27:38strength to comprehend with all the
27:40saints what is the breadth the length
27:43the height and the depth to know the
27:46love of Christ that surpasses knowledge
27:50so that you may be filled with all the
27:53fullness of God now to him who is able
27:55to do far more abundantly than all we
27:58ask or think according to the power at
28:00work within us to him be all glory in
28:03the church and in Christ Jesus
28:05throughout all generations forever and
28:07ever in the name of Jesus amen
