And he himself was in the stern, asleep on the cushion: and they awake him, and say unto him, Teacher, carest thou not that we perish? (ASV)

The Christians of "Matthew's" time generally referred to Jesus as "lord" (the Greek "kurios", coincidence that it sounds like "curious"?). The Jews of Jesus' supposed time who allegedly followed him would have referred to him as "teacher" or "master". In "Mark's" Gospel no one ever addresses Jesus as "lord" except for the shiksa in Mark 7:28. In almost all of Mark's stories that Matthew copies Matthew either substitutes the "teacher" of Mark with "lord" or deletes "teacher" when Jesus is addressed by anyone other than the hated Pharisees, Sadducees or Judas. This is just one of many pieces of solid evidence that the author of "Matthew" anachronistically projected information from HIS time back into Jesus' supposed time.
As that famous 20th century philosopher, ALF said, "Look it up": (NIV)

According to the Talmud as the tax collector disciple in Mark was named "Levi" instead of the "Matthew" in Matthew's" version the Gospel now known as "Matthew" was originally titled as "Levi" but the early Christians thought "Levi" sounded "too Jewish" so they changed it to "Matthew".
