He got up, rebuked the wind and said to the waves, “Quiet! Be still!” Then the wind died down and it was completely calm.Mark 4:39
Jesus is the ruler over all things. During his ministry, he showed his power over disease, death and demons. In this story, we’ll see him on Lake Galilee, where he shows his power over nature.
SCENE 1 – on land
(JAMES, JOHN, PETER, JESUS)
Sound of a crowd in the distance.
What a day this has been!
I don’t think we’ve ever seen this many people before. What do you think, Peter?
Yeah, that’s the largest crowd yet, by far. I’m just glad they’ve finally decided to go home.
Other disciples express agreement.
Jesus has taught all day. He must be tired.
We need to find a place to get some rest. Rabbi, do you want to stay here tonight?
Let’s go over to the other side of the lake.
Whatever you want, Jesus. Come on, guys, let’s go.
Thank you. I’m going to rest. Wake me when we’re across.
Boat pushes away from shore, splashing as men jump into the boat. Water gently lapping at the sides.
Sound of wind picking up.
Hey Peter -- do you hear that wind?
Yes, I do.
What do you think?
We should be ok. But we all know how quickly a storm can come up on the water.
Let Jesus sleep for now, but we need to be ready in case things get rough.

SCENE 2 – On the sea
Sound of wind growing stronger.
The wind is picking up fast. And look at those clouds!
Thunder in the distance.
That’s not good.
And we’re not even halfway across.
I know. This is going to get rough, and quickly.
Hold on tight, brothers! Here it comes!
MUSIC indicates the passage of time. Building in urgency as the storm grows.
Wind begins to howl fiercely. Thunder rumbles. Waves strike the side of the boat.

SCENE 3 – In the boat
(JAMES, PETER, JOHN)
The storm gets worse. More wind. More thunder. More rain. More waves. A large one crashes over the side of the boat. The men are terror stricken.
We’re taking on water!
Another large wave.
We’re sinking! We’re going to die!
The storm continues throughout.
How can Jesus still be sleeping through this?!
Jesus! Wake up, Master! Help us!
Master, wake up!
JESUS begins to stir.
Master! Help us, please!
We’re going to drown! Don’t you even care??
Storm continues. Loud thunder booms in a long rumble.
Wind ceases. Water goes from crashing waves to gentle lapping at the sides of the boat.
The storm. It’s gone.
What ... what just happened? How did he ...
Disciples murmur among themselves.
Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?
(even more afraid)
Wh-who is this man?
Even the wind and the waves obey his voice!
He has power over nature itself!
More gentle water lapping against the boat.
