Definitely not awful writing (one of my highest forms of praise). Satan's domain--worth taking a moment on that, thank-you. It would explain a lot. Satan couldn't have seriously offered the world if he didn't in some sense own it. [computer question: domain name?____ Satan? Satan's?]

I'm thinking that Jesus handing over the skipper position to the disciples during a storm correlates with someone saying elsewhere (Jesus, perhaps, though I'm only on one cup of coffee here) that the disciples were capable of performing even greater miracles than Jesus.

Thanks David.

I think your last point is very important. Jesus' 'miracles' were like paddling in the shallows. There was no reason why the disciples couldn't swim out in the ocean.

Isn't it odd that Christianity more or less ignored this side of Jesus later on? I think the French king used to hold healing sessions at his coronation. But apart from that, nothing about those pesky 'miracles'.
