47.Read the story of Jesus calming the sea in all three synoptic gospels (Matt.8:23-27; Mark 4:35-41; Luke 8:22-25). According to early Christian tradition,Mark's gospel drew heavily from the preaching and teaching of the apostlePeter as one of its sources. Bearing in mind that Peter was a fisherman bytrade, whereas Matthew was a tax collector and Luke was a doctor, Markseems to include some details which support the tradition that he got some ofhis account from Peter. Which of the following details in Mark's account pointto Peter's eye-witness account of the event? (You should select three answers. Two of the options are clearly wrong.)a.Mark alone mentions that there were other boats with them. This is thekind of detail that Peter would likely have remembered.b.Mark alone describes the storm as "furious". This is consistent to afisherman's recollection of the extreme nature of that particular storm.c.Mark alone records where Jesus was in the boat, namely, "in thestern". This is the kind of detail a fisherman would probably mention.d.Mark alone mentions that Jesus was sleeping "on a cushion". This kindof eye-witness detail probably came from Peter's memory.e.Mark alone mentions the disciples' fear after Jesus calmed the storm, adetail he probably got from Peter's memory of the emotion of themoment.a.The gospel writers use this story to show Jesus's complete authorityover demons. He even had power over the most powerful demons, theones no exorcist could control.b.Although Mark mentions two demoniacs, while Matthew and Lukemention only one, there is no real conflict. There were two demoniacs,but one was the focus because he was possessed by the legion.c.The people asked Jesus to leave their region because they were afraidthat the demons he had cast out might enter one of them.d.Matthew is the longest of the four gospels because, generallyspeaking, he records events in the most detail.e.In this case, Mark's account is the longest and most detailed.Therefore, if you were to preach about this incident, it would probablybe best to base the sermon primarily on Mark's gospel. 48. Read the account of the Jesus casting out the Gerasene demons in each of the synoptic gospels (Matt. 8:28-34; Mark 5:1-20; Luke 8:26-39). Select EACH true statement below. 16

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
