|| Mark 4:35-41; Luke 8:22-25
MT8:23 Jesus’ disciples followed him as he embarked into the boat. MT8:24 And, look! a great disturbance occurred in the sea and the boat was about to be swamped by the [storm] waves. But Jesus was sleeping. MT8:25 They approached Jesus and aroused him, saying, “Master, save us, for we are being destroyed!” MT8:26 And Jesus told them, “Why are you frightened, you with little faith?” Then he rose and rebuked the winds and the sea and a great calm occurred. MT8:27 But, these men wondered, saying, “What kind of person is this that the winds and the sea obey him?”
 A great disturbance: The Greek is SEISMOS MEGAS as in a shaking, a great earthquake.
 About to be swamped: The Greek is literally “covered” indicating the height of the waves. The Sea of Galilee is capable of great and sudden storms. Only a person who is been in such a storm realizes the range of emotions among these seasoned fishermen. They surely were used to foul weather.
 Sleeping: Imagine the Nazarene’s dreams in such slumber surrounded by danger.
 Frightened: The Greek is DEILOI and is variously rendered: DIA: timid, KJV: fearful; RIEU: cowards
 Little faith: Some render the phrase: PME: little-faiths.
 What kind of person: They never think he is God.
