“Who, then, is this, that even the wind and sea obey him?” He is the same one that spoke to the darkness and made light; that separated the earth from the sea; that called the trees and the animals into being. And He is the same One that formed man and woman from the dust of the ground. This is why the winds and the waves obey Him. Being that close to the one who had so much authority must have been frightening for the disciples. Even though Jesus was explaining all these parables of great things to come and how the Kingdom of God will be, seeing it in action can be daunting. It still amazes me that I am in such close proximity to so much power.'
