Mark 3 - and Hesiod
Type of Spiritual Experience
This can be interpreted as meaning they are minor gods who are the offspring of an Intelligence and this would be a valid interpretation.
But maybe the powers they obtained were as a result of being in a storm – that too is a possibility.
A description of the experience
Hesiod - Works and Days
Through Zeus each man is famous or unknown,
Talked of or left obscure, through his great will
With ease he strengthens any man; with ease
He makes the strong man humble and with ease
He levels mountains and exalts the plain
Withers the proud and makes the crooked straight
With ease, the Thunderer whose home is high
And James, the son of Zebedee, and John, the brother of James, and he gave them the name Boanerges, which is Sons of Thunder.
