Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Mark 4:40

_ _ And he said unto them, Why are ye so fearful? — There is a natural apprehension under danger; but there was unbelief in their fear. It is worthy of notice how considerately the Lord defers this rebuke till He had first removed the danger, in the midst of which they would not have been in a state to listen to anything.

_ _ how is it that ye have no faith? — next to none, or none in present exercise. In Matthew (Matthew 8:26) it is, “Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith?” Faith they had, for they applied to Christ for relief: but little, for they were afraid, though Christ was in the ship. Faith dispels fear, but only in proportion to its strength.
