We often find a juxtaposition between the faith of the disciples (small as it is) and the faithlessness of “the world”, who rejects and doubts Christ, in the Gospels. It is most explicit in the Gospel of St. John, but you can find it in the others.
"And when he was alone, the twelve that were with him asked him the parable.
And he said to them: To you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but to them that are without, all things are done in parables: That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand: lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them." (Mark 4: 11-13)
