Luke 8:23 Meaning and Commentary

Luke 8:23

But as he sailed he fell asleep
On a pillow, in the hinder part of the ship, as in ( Mark 4:38 ) and there came down a storm of wind on the lake,
(See Gill on Matthew 8:24).

and they were filled;
with water: not the disciples, but the ship in which they were; and so the Ethiopic version renders it, "their ship was filled with water". The Syriac and Persic versions render it, "the ship was almost sunk", or immersed:

and were in jeopardy;
of their lives, in the utmost danger, just ready to go to the bottom. This clause is left out in the Syriac and Persic versions.

Luke 8:23 In-Context

21 He replied, “My mother and brothers are those who hear God’s word and put it into practice.”
22 One day Jesus said to his disciples, “Let us go over to the other side of the lake.” So they got into a boat and set out.
23 As they sailed, he fell asleep. A squall came down on the lake, so that the boat was being swamped, and they were in great danger.
24 The disciples went and woke him, saying, “Master, Master, we’re going to drown!” He got up and rebuked the wind and the raging waters; the storm subsided, and all was calm.
25 “Where is your faith?” he asked his disciples. In fear and amazement they asked one another, “Who is this? He commands even the winds and the water, and they obey him.”
