As Jesus travelled through the country many people began to follow Him. He began to teach them as one having authority, but yet using simple parables that the people could understand. The well known parable of the sower shows how important it is that the seed of God’s Word may fall into a heart that is prepared by God.
He also shows His power over nature by stilling the storm. As in creation he only had to speak and it came to pass, so he only had to command the wind and it stopped.
