Jesus Walks on Water
After Jesus had fed the hungry crowd, he sent them home. He made his disciples get into the boat and they set off by themselves to Capernaum. Meanwhile, Jesus went up on the mountainside to pray.
Later that night, the boat was in the middle of the lake. Jesus saw them straining to row the boat because a strong wind was blowing against them.
Shortly before dawn he went out to them, walking on the lake. He was about to pass by them, but when they saw him walking on the lake, they thought he was a ghost. They cried out, because were terrified.
But Jesus said, “Don’t be frightened. It is me.”
Peter replied, “Lord, if it is really you, tell me to come to you.”
Jesus said, “Come.”
Peter got out of the boat and started to walk toward Jesus. But he began to doubt and started to sink. He cried out, “Lord, please save me!”
Jesus reached out his hand and pulled him out of the water.
He said, “Why did you doubt?”
As they climbed into the boat, the storm calmed down.
The disciples were amazed and they worshiped him in the boat, saying, “You are truly the son of God.”
