Not all of the moments and sayings in the life of Jesus can we read as a sequence of events. We have stories and sayings that we can’t always connect. But in today’s study we can see things in sequence, which adds meaning to the story. This includes the feeding of the 5,000, the rescue of the apostles while they are struggling against great winds on the Sea of Galilee, and the Bread of Life speech which motivated many of Jesus’s followers to desert Him.

Come, Follow Me for Sunday School: “Thy Faith Hath Saved Thee” Matthew 8-9; Mark 2-5
The accounts in these chapters of miraculous healings testify of the calling of Jesus Christ, but there is more.
