27 But the men marvelled, saying, What manner of man is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him!
27 Verse 27. The men marvelled] Every part of the creation (man
excepted) hears and obeys the Creator's voice. Sinners have an
ear for the world, the devil, and the flesh: till this ear is
shut, God's voice is not discerned; for when it is shut to its
enemies it is open to its friends.
What manner of man is this] ποταποςεστινουτος, How great is
this person! Here was God fully manifest; but it was in the
flesh-there were the hidings of his power.
