There is an amazing story in the Bible. Jesus, the Son of God, left his Father and came to interact with mankind. Faith is required to believe and to figuratively step out of the boat of convention. Movies, Sunday school, and traditions lend an inconvenient familiarity in thought to the story. Imagine if you can being in the boat with the disciples, being in the crowd on the shore or standing in the distance watching the scenes in the Scriptures - not knowing "the back of the book". Jesus came to reveal the Father and to teach us His ways.


Ch . 37 - Jesus Walks On The Sea

Matthew 14:24-33; Mark 6:47-52; John 6:16-21

While Jesus was alone in the Mountain praying, his disciples entered a boat and started over the sea toward Capernaum. But the wind rose and lashed the sea into great waves and held up their progress. 

            About the fourth watch of the night Jesus came down to the shore, saw the boat, and walked upon the sea toward them.

            When they saw him in the water, his disciples were troubled and said:

            “It is a spirit.”

            They cried out with fear.

            Jesus heard them and said:

            “Be of good cheer. It is I; be not afraid.”

            Peter replied, saying:

            “Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water.”

            Jesus said:


            Peter descended from the boat and walked toward Jesus on the water. When he saw that the waves were boisterous, he was afraid and began to sink. He cried out, saying:

            “Lord, save me.”

            Immediately Jesus stretched forth his hand, caught Peter, and said to him:

            “O thou of little faith, wherefore didst thou doubt?”

            When the two of them entered the boat, the wind ceased. All who were on board came and worshiped Jesus, saying:

            “Of a truth thou art the Son of God.”
