Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

See commentary on John 6:18-19.


John 6:19

_ _ they see Jesus — “about the fourth watch of the night” (Matthew 14:25; Mark 6:48), or between three and six in the morning.

_ _ walking on the sea — What Job (Job 9:8) celebrates as the distinguishing prerogative of God, “WHO ALONE spreadeth out the heavens, and TREADETH UPON THE WAVES OF THE SEA” — What AGUR challenges as God’s unapproachable prerogative, to “GATHER THE WIND IN HIS FISTS, and BIND THE WATERS IN A GARMENT” (Proverbs 30:4) — lo! this is here done in flesh, by “THE SON OF MAN.”

_ _ drawing nigh to the ship — yet as though He “would have passed by them,Mark 6:48 (compare Luke 24:28; Genesis 18:3, Genesis 18:5; Genesis 32:24-26).

_ _ they were afraid — “cried out for fear” (Matthew 14:26), “supposing it had been a spirit” (Mark 6:49). He would appear to them at first like a dark moving speck upon the waters; then as a human figure, but — in the dark tempestuous sky, and not dreaming that it could be their Lord — they take it for a spirit. (How often thus we miscall our chiefest mercies — not only thinking them distant when they are near, but thinking the best the worst!)
