One of the most important things in the Gospel of Mark is the identity of Jesus. But many people don’t realize that Mark is telling who Jesus is through the stories about what Jesus did. When we look at the text carefully, we can see one amazing revelation after another revealing the “high Christology” of the Gospel of Mark. In other words, the skeptics who sometimes claim Mark has a low view of the person of Christ are completely mistaken.
In the passage we are in today (6:45-56), we will see that Jesus’ walking on water has an interesting connection to the book of Job and, once again, is best explained by connecting the person of Christ to God Himself. I’ll also tackle some challenges to the accuracy of the Gospel of Mark when he talks about the journeys of the disciples across the Sea of Galilee.
