Mark 4:38 (NLT)
38 Jesus was sleeping at the back of the boat with his head on a cushion. Frantically they woke him up, shouting, “Teacher, don’t you even care that we are going to drown?”
TIME OF DAY:
Verse 35 tells us that it was evening.
The storm clouds are obscuring the evening sun which is low over the lake. A lantern on the mast top also throws light onto the scene below.
Jesus (sleeping in the back of the boat) with various disciples looking terrified.
James (son of Zebedee & brother of John) is cowering beneath a blanket at the bow of the boat. Andrew is deep in prayer on his knees, with eyes closed. John (son of Zebedee & brother of James) is grabbing hold of Matthew (also called Levi) who is hanging on to the side of the boat & who is looking decidedly green! There are three unnamed disciples behind these, one of whom is about to shake Jesus (lying asleep in the stern of the boat.)
There are 2 versions of this scene:
01) Previous page Mark 04 – Jesus calms storm – Scene 03 – Jesus sleeps (Dark version.) In which the waves are much darker blue, which shows the scene occurs at night.
02) This page Mark 04 – Jesus calms storm – Scene 03 – Jesus sleeps (Light version.) In which the waves are lighter in tone, to help then show up better on screen for customers wishing to projection or print this scene.
I tend to show Matthew/Levi looking green from seasickness in these boating scenes on the lake!
