Christ the King of the Cosmos

“Christ the King of the Cosmos”
A reflection on Matthew 8:23-27

As Jesus got into a boat, his disciples followed him. Suddenly a violent storm came up on the sea, so that the boat was being swamped by waves; but he was asleep. They came and woke him, saying, “Lord, save us! We are perishing!” He said to them, “Why are you terrified, O you of little faith?” Then he got up, rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was great calm. The men were amazed and said, “What sort of man is this, whom even the winds and the sea obey?”

Matthew 8:23-27

The Greek word for “storm” in Matthew 8:24 is seismos, “shaking, tempest, earthquake.” For the pronunciation of seismos and cosmos, click phonetics for each word in the Bible lexicon.

Christ the King of the cosmos
Stills the seas of the seismos.
