Bible: Matt 14:22-34

Walking on Water

14:22 Immediately Jesus 1  made the disciples get into the boat and go ahead of him to the other side, while he dispersed the crowds. 14:23 And after he sent the crowds away, he went up the mountain by himself to pray. When evening came, he was there alone. 14:24 Meanwhile the boat, already far from land, 2  was taking a beating from the waves because the wind was against it. 14:25 As the night was ending, 3  Jesus came to them walking on the sea. 4  14:26 When 5  the disciples saw him walking on the water 6  they were terrified and said, “It’s a ghost!” and cried out with fear. 14:27 But immediately Jesus 7  spoke to them: 8  “Have courage! It is I. Do not be afraid.” 14:28 Peter 9  said to him, 10 Lord, if it is you, order me to come to you on the water.” 14:29 So he said, “Come.” Peter got out of the boat, walked on the water, and came toward Jesus. 14:30 But when he saw the strong wind he became afraid. And starting to sink, he cried out, 11 Lord, save me! 14:31 Immediately Jesus reached out his hand and caught him, saying to him, “You of little faith, why did you doubt? 14:32 When they went up into the boat, the wind ceased. 14:33 Then those who were in the boat worshiped him, saying, “Truly you are the Son of God.”

14:34 After they had crossed over, they came to land at Gennesaret. 12
