The power of Jesus (Mt 8:27-8:27)

“These men were amazed.


‘What sort of man is this?

Even the winds obey him.

Even the sea obeys him.’”


οἱ δὲ ἄνθρωποι ἐθαύμασαν λέγοντες Ποταπός ἐστιν οὗτος ὅτι καὶ οἱ ἄνεμοι καὶ ἡ θάλασσα αὐτῷ ὑπακούουσιν;


This comment about the power of Jesus can be found in Mark, chapter 4:41, and Luke, chapter 8:25, with something similar.  These male disciples of Jesus marveled or were amazed (οἱ δὲ ἄνθρωποι ἐθαύμασαν) at what they had just seen take place.  They wondered out loud (λέγοντες) what kind of man that Jesus was (Ποταπός ἐστιν οὗτος).  Both the winds and the sea obey him (ὅτι καὶ οἱ ἄνεμοι καὶ ἡ θάλασσα αὐτῷ ὑπακούουσιν).  He was the Lord of nature and weather.
