“Worship God’s Son.” The KJV Standard Lesson Commentary, 2014–2015, OUTLINE

December 28 Lesson 4 WORSHIP GOD’S SON
DEVOTIONAL READING: Mark 9:15–24 BACKGROUND SCRIPTURE: Matthew 14:22–36

MATTHEW 14:22–36

22 And straightway Jesus constrained his disciples to get into a ship, and to go before him unto the other side, while he sent the multitudes away.
23 And when he had sent the multitudes away, he went up into a mountain apart to pray: and when the evening was come, he was there alone.

25 And in the fourth watch of the night Jesus went unto them, walking on the sea.
26 And when the disciples saw him walking on the sea, they were troubled, saying, It is a spirit; and they cried out for fear.
27 But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid.
28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.

Lesson for December 28, 2014Worship God’s SonMatthew 14:22-36This treatment of the International Sunday School Lesson is written by Sam E. Stone, former editor of CHRISTIAN STANDARD.

Stone  With the feeding of the 5,000 in the third year of Jesus’ ministry, his favor with the crowds grew dramatically. The people enthusiastically ate the food he provided for them, but they were looking for even more—tomorrow’s meals, the sick cured, and a champion to lead the nation in revolt against the Roman authorities. John wrote, “Jesus, knowing that they intended to come and make him king by force, withdrew again to a mountain by himself” (John 6:15). Our lesson text comes from Matthew’s account of what followed.
