Read Numbers 13:26 - 14:10 with Matthew 8:18-27
Jesus had great multitude following him because of the mighty miracles of healing he performed. Yet, few were disciples of faith. In our text, and in comparison to the Centurion's faith, there was not much to marvel at concerning the faith of the scribe, another disciple, or even the twelve who got into the boat to cross the sea. The issues of true saving faith as a disciple are before us; and Jesus challenges the soul to have faith.
