The disciples followed (Mt 8:23-8:23)

“When he got

Into the boat,

His disciples

Followed him.”


Καὶ ἐμβάντι αὐτῷ εἰς τὸ πλοῖον ἠκολούθησαν αὐτῷ οἱ μαθηταὶ αὐτοῦ.


This short episode of everyone getting into the boat can be found in Mark, chapter 4:36, and Luke, chapter 8:22, somewhat similar.  This simple statement has Jesus get into the boat (Καὶ ἐμβάντι αὐτῷ εἰς τὸ πλοῖον) and then his disciples followed him (ἠκολούθησαν αὐτῷ οἱ μαθηταὶ αὐτοῦ.).  This reemphasized the idea of the importance of his disciples “οἱ μαθηταὶ αὐτοῦ” who followed him “ἠκολούθησαν αὐτῷ.”
