Like the prophet Jonah, Jesus was sent to sow the seed of God’s teaching on other soil. Unlike Jonah, Jesus trusted God’s will, carrying out his Father’s instruction without hesitation or the slightest hint of rebellion. So you can imagine the Lord’s frustration, when at the first hint of danger, the disciples cower from God’s mission.
“The floods,” David cried, “have lifted up, O Lord! The flood have lifted up their voice!”
“But thy testimonies,” cower the disciples, “are not confirmed! Do you not care that we are perishing?”
