Matthew 14:25 Parallel
Wesley's Notes on the Bible

14:25 The fourth watch - The Jews (as well as the Romans) usually divided the night into four watches, of three hours each.

Matthew 14:25 Parallel Commentaries

Again on Matt. xiv. 25: of the Lord Walking on the Waves of the Sea, and of Peter Tottering.

Saint Augustine—sermons on selected lessons of the new testament

Mr. Fearing Comforted
I think I shall be quite safe in concluding this morning, that there are some here who are full of doubting and fearing. Sure I am that all true Christians have their times of anxious questioning. The heart that hath never doubted has not yet learned to believe.
