Jesus made his disciples get back into the boat and
cross to the other side of the lake while he sent the people home.
and then Jesus went up into the hills by himself to pray.
Meanwhile, the disciples were in trouble far away from land,
for a strong wind had risen, and they were fighting heavy waves.
About 3 o'clock in the morning,
Jesus came to them, walking on the water.
The disciples thought he was a ghost when they saw Jesus.
But Jesus spoke to them,
"It's alright, I am here! Don't be afraid."
Then Peter called to him,
"If its really you, tell me to come to you by walking on water"
"All right, come." Jesus said to Peter.
So Peter went over the side of the boat and walked on water toward Jesus.
But when he looked around at the high waves, he was terrified
and began to sink.
Instantly, Jesus reached out his hand and grabbed him.
"You don't have much faith.
Why did you doubt me?"
Jesus said to Peter.
And when they climbed back into the boat, the wind stopped.
