Luke 8:25 Meaning and Commentary

Luke 8:25

And he said unto them, where is your faith?
&c.] That is, he said so to his disciples, who had professed faith in him, but now discovered very little:

and they being afraid, wondered;
being filled with awful sense of his majesty, were amazed at his power and authority, in rebuking the wind and sea, which at once obeyed him, and were still:

saying one another;
among themselves, privately:

what manner of man is this? for he commandeth even the winds and
water;
or the sea, as the Vulgate Latin. The Syriac version reads both, "the floods and the sea";

and they obey him:
according to Matthew, these words seem to be spoken by the men of the ship, the mariners; but here, according to Luke, they seem to be the words of the disciples; (See Gill on Matthew 8:27) (See Gill on Mark 4:41).
