FOURTH SUNDAY AFTER THE EPIPHANY. BY REV. ASHTON OXENDEN, D.D.ST. MATT. vm. 23-34. And when he was entered into a ship, his disciples followed him. And behold, there arose a great tempest in the sea, insomuch that the ship was covered with the waves : but he was asleep. And his disciples came to him, and awoke him, saying, Lord, save us, we perish. And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, ye of little faith ? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea, and there was a great calm. But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds arid the sea obey him ! And when he was come to the other side, into the country of the Gergesenes, there met him two possessed with devils, coming out of the tombs, exceeding fierce, so that no man might pass by that way. And behold they cried out. saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God ? art thou come hither to torment us before the t ; me ? And there was a good way oft from them an herd of many s\vine, feeding. SJo the devils besought him, saying, If thou cast us out, sufter us to go away into the herd of swine. And he said

unto them, Go. And when they were come out, they went into the herd of swine : and buhold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea, nd perished in the waters. And they that kept them tied, and went their ways into the city, and told every thing, and what was befallen to the possessed of the after the Epiphany. 129 devils. And behold, the whole city came out to meet Jesus : and when they saw him, they besought him that he would depart out of their coasts. HERE, as well as in the Gospel for last Sunday, we have two distinct miracles related to us ; namely, the quelling of a storm at sea, and the calming of two persons disturbed by the possession of devils. The quelling of the storm is the first in order. Jesus, as we are told in v. 5, had gone to Capernaum, a small fishing town

^n the borders of the Sea or Lake of Tiberias. After staying there a short time, being somewhat troubled by the multitude of people that flocked around Him, He determined to depart unto the other side. For this purpose He entered a ship belong ing to one of His seafaring followers ; and being probably weary with His unceasing labours, and night coming on, He calmly fell asleep. Meanwhile the sky became dark and threatening. The wind blew, and whistled loudly through the rigging. And so vio lent was the storm, that the waves dashed over the ship, and it was in great jeopardy. K 130 Fourth Sunday
