Luke 8:22 Meaning and Commentary

Luke 8:22

Now it came to pass on a certain day
The same day at even, as Mark says, ( Mark 4:35 ) in which he delivered the parables of the sower, and of the seed cast into the ground, and of the grain of mustard seed:

that he went into a ship with his disciples;
they following him into it, ( Matthew 8:23 )

and he said unto them, let us go over unto the other side of the
lake;
of Gennesaret, or sea of Galilee:

and they launched forth;
into the sea; they set sail, and proceeded: this clause is omitted in the Syriac and Persic versions.

Luke 8:22 In-Context

20 Someone told Jesus, “Your mother and your brothers are standing outside, and they want to see you.”
21 Jesus replied, “My mother and my brothers are all those who hear God’s word and obey it.”
22 One day Jesus said to his disciples, “Let’s cross to the other side of the lake.” So they got into a boat and started out.
23 As they sailed across, Jesus settled down for a nap. But soon a fierce storm came down on the lake. The boat was filling with water, and they were in real danger.
24 The disciples went and woke him up, shouting, “Master, Master, we’re going to drown!” When Jesus woke up, he rebuked the wind and the raging waves. Suddenly the storm stopped and all was calm.
