Who Is This Man, that the Winds and the Waves Obey Him?

Who is this man, that the winds and waves obey him?  was the question asked by the apostles after watching Jesus calm a storm with a word:  no ordinary man, they were certain, and they thought they knew,  but one thing was certain in Israel: everyone had an opinion.   Jesus even remarks himself on who the 'Son of Man' was and is,  and contrary to popular secular opinion he made it clear on numerous occasions that he was the Messiah, the ensign of God towards which Israel and the rest of the world would turn and believe, or would turn away from and die.   The speech available below is a look at Jesus, and what he and others said of him.  First in a series,  we look at 'what manner of man' it was that held sovereign power even over the winds and waves out on Galilee, and later over death.  Speaker/teacher: Elizabeth K.
