Year A, Proper 14: Jonah 2:1–9; Psalm 29; Romans 9:1–5; Matthew 14:22–33
Mark, Matthew, Luke, and John all share the story of Jesus feeding the five thousand. Mark, Matthew, and John, but not Luke, follow this story with the account of Jesus walking on the sea. No one is really sure why Luke omitted it. Scholars call the omission of this and other passages in Mark that Matthew included, “the great omission.” And I’ll leave it at that.
