Luke 8:25

25 Then he said to his disciples, "Why can't you trust me?" They were in absolute awe, staggered and stammering, "Who is this, anyway? He calls out to the winds and sea, and they do what he tells them!"

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).

Luke 8:25 In-Context

23 It was smooth sailing, and he fell asleep. A terrific storm came up suddenly on the lake. Water poured in, and they were about to capsize.
24 They woke Jesus: "Master, Master, we're going to drown!" Getting to his feet, he told the wind, "Silence!" and the waves, "Quiet down!" They did it. The lake became smooth as glass.
25 Then he said to his disciples, "Why can't you trust me?" They were in absolute awe, staggered and stammering, "Who is this, anyway? He calls out to the winds and sea, and they do what he tells them!"
26 They sailed on to the country of the Gerasenes, directly opposite Galilee.
27 As he stepped out onto land, a madman from town met him; he was a victim of demons. He hadn't worn clothes for a long time, nor lived at home; he lived in the cemetery.
