Matthew 8:18-27 Common English Bible (CEB)

Discussions about following

18 Now when Jesus saw the crowd, he ordered his disciples to go over to the other side of the lake. 19 A legal expert came and said to him, “Teacher, I’ll follow you wherever you go.”

20 Jesus replied, “Foxes have dens, and the birds in the sky have nests, but the Human One[a] has no place to lay his head.”

21 Another man, one of his disciples, said to him, “Lord, first let me go and bury my father.”

22 But Jesus said to him, “Follow me, and let the dead bury their own dead.”

Calming a storm

23 When Jesus got into a boat, his disciples followed him. 24 A huge storm arose on the lake so that waves were sloshing over the boat. But Jesus was asleep. 25 They came and woke him, saying, “Lord, rescue us! We’re going to drown!”

26 He said to them, “Why are you afraid, you people of weak faith?” Then he got up and gave orders to the winds and the lake, and there was a great calm.

27 The people were amazed and said, “What kind of person is this? Even the winds and the lake obey him!”
