“He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem. Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted.” - Isaiah 53:3-4
Luke 8:22-25 22) Now it happened on one of those days, that he entered into a boat, himself and his disciples, and he said to them, "Let‘s go over to the other side of the lake." So they launched out. 23) But as they sailed, he fell asleep. A wind storm came down on the lake, and they were taking on dangerous amounts of water. 24) They came to him, and awoke him, saying, "Master, master, we are dying!" He awoke, and rebuked the wind and the raging of the water, and they ceased, and it was calm. 25) He said to them, "Where is your faith?" Being afraid they marveled, saying one to another, "Who is this, then, that he commands even the winds and the water, and they obey him?"
Luke 8:9-15 9) Then his disciples asked him, "What does this parable mean?" 10) He said, "To you it is given to know the mysteries of the kingdom of God, but to the rest in parables; that ‘seeing they may not see, and hearing they may not understand.‘ 11) Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God. 12) Those by the road are those who hear, then the devil comes, and takes away the word from their heart, that they may not believe and be saved. 13) Those on the rock are they who, when they hear, receive the word with joy; but these have no root, who believe for a while, and fall away in time of temptation. 14) That which fell among the thorns, these are those who have heard, and as they go on their way they are choked with cares, riches, and pleasures of life, and bring no fruit to maturity. 15) That in the good ground, these are such as in an honest and good heart, having heard the word, hold it tightly, and bring forth fruit with patience.
