Bible: Mark 6:45-52

Walking on Water

6:45 Immediately Jesus 1  made his disciples get into the boat and go on ahead to the other side, to Bethsaida, while he dispersed the crowd. 6:46 After saying good-bye to them, he went to the mountain to pray. 6:47 When evening came, the boat was in the middle of the sea and he was alone on the land. 6:48 He 2  saw them straining at the oars, because the wind was against them. As the night was ending, 3  he came to them walking on the sea, 4  for 5  he wanted to pass by them. 6  6:49 When they saw him walking on the water 7  they thought he was a ghost. They 8  cried out, 6:50 for they all saw him and were terrified. But immediately he spoke to them: 9  “Have courage! It is I. Do not be afraid.” 6:51 Then he went up with them into the boat, and the wind ceased. They were completely astonished, 6:52 because they did not understand about the loaves, but their hearts were hardened.
