Psalms: 54, 125


Mark: I see many parallels in this scene which hearkens back to Jonah. Jonah boarded a ship headed for Tarshish with, as it were, a boatload of unbelievers. Jonah, like Jesus, was asleep when a tempest erupted and Jonah got tossed overboard (at his own insistence) and suddenly the seas were calm (alas but not for Jonah). Jesus stilled the waves but asked: “Do you still have no faith?”

Gospel: Mark 4:35-41

New Testament: 2 Cor. 11:21b – 31

Old Testament: Judges 11:1-11, 29-40
