Good evening. Here are a few thoughts from Chapter 6.
- Son of Man (vs. 5) *see note below
- Lord of the Sabbath (vs. 5) **see note below
- Prayerful. Jesus prayed all night before choosing the 12 apostles. (vs. 12-13)
- Merciful (vs. 36)
- A Firm Foundation (vs. 46-48)
*the title "Son of Man" that Jesus uses for himself here and in Luke 5:24 is a reference to Daniel 7; specifically verses 13-14. "I saw in the night visions, and behold, with the clouds of heaven there came one like a son of man, and he came to the Ancient of Days and was presented before him. And to him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve him; his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom one that shall not be destroyed." For further reading compare this passage with Philippians 2; specifically verses 10-11. Also be on the lookout for when Jesus uses this title about Himself. Fun fact: Jesus refers to Himself as the Son of Man more than 70 times.
**the word used for Lord in verse 5 is the Greek word kurios according to Strong's Lexicon this title means someone with "absolute ownership rights"
