“The men were amazed and asked, ‘What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!’”
In Mark 4:41, Jesus’ disciples are astounded by his display of authority over creation. It is a moment that is meant to remind the reader of Moses parting the Red Sea. Jesus is presented as a new and better Moses. Much like the Israelites endless journey after their escape from Egypt, finding the truth about Jesus is a constant search. Every day is an opportunity to see new truths and find new hope.
This illustration “Be Still” is from a series by Stephen Procopio that reflect on things hidden in the actions and statements made by Jesus. His rebukes are often shrouded in parable, his actions full of allusion. The selection of passages in these illustrations display the mystery of Jesus found between and inside that which we see.
Read Mark 4:35-41
