After Jesus had fed the 5,000, he told the disciples to get into the boat and go on ahead of him to the other side.
Then he went up on a mountainside by himself to pray. By evening, the boat had sailed a great distance from the land.
As the disciples sailed toward the other side ...
the wind began to blow and the sea became rough.
The sea became so rough that some of the disciples were becoming seasick!
The disciples looked out over the sea and saw an amazing sight! They saw Jesus walking toward them on the water. They looked out at the sea and guess what they saw? They saw Jesus walking toward them on the water!
When they saw him, they were terrified and cried out in fear, "It's a ghost!"
"Don't be afraid, it is I,“ Jesus said.
"Lord, if it's you," Peter said, "tell me to come to you on the water." "Come," Jesus answered.
So Peter got out of the boat and began walking on the water toward Jesus.
But when he saw the waves, he was afraid…
and he began to sink!
“Help! Save me,” Peter cried!
Immediately, Jesus reached out and caught him.
"You of little faith," he said, "why did you doubt?"
And when they had climbed back into the boat, the sea became calm.
