Matthew 14:22-27

In Matthew, I recently read about Jesus finishing talking to a crowd, going to a mountain to pray, and coming on the water towards the boat the disciples were in.  In the above verses, I noticed that Jesus came at “the fourth watch.”  The Reformation Study Bible by R. C. Sproul said that “the fourth watch” would be between 3:00 and 6:00 a.m.!  Also, I realized the word, “crowd” was used and had been used several times in previous chapters.  Curious, I did a search in biblegateway.com and found that “crowd” is in Matthew 41 times!

Jesus was often around crowds.  Today, Jesus is in Heaven after dying for mankind’s sin and rising from the dead.  According to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_religious_populations there were 2.2 billion Christians in 2012.  Join the Christian crowd.
